According to Boswell (1980: 269–332), it was during the thirteenth and fourteenth centuries that social and theological condemnation of homosexuality gathered strength. Medical and legal texts, however, may have delayed their censure. On this point, see Foucault (1994: 293–4). Daston and Park (1996: 121). This paragraph follows Daston and Park’s analysis.

See also the analysis by Rose (1994). Dreger (1998: 93 and 146–50). Cleminson and Vázquez García (2007). For an essay that urges a close examination of national sexological traditions and a questioning of Foucault’s discontinuous historical analysis, see Nye (1991). A further national difference with respect to hermaphroditism has been discussed by Dreger in that French doctors were keener than British ones to inquire into their patients’ sexual penchants and activities, perhaps in order to unmask any possibility of practising homosexuality.
