  • Illustrations: This chapter argues that Peter Damian's "Liber gomorrhianus" (1049) may be an attack on sodomites within the eleventh-century clergy, but his panoptical gaze, his concern with discipline and subjectivization, sameness, community, and identity-less desire, also establish him as an early queer theorist.
