  • Title: Mythology as Code: Lapo da Castiglionchio's View of Homosexuality and Materialism at the Curia [The author suggests that Lapo da Castiglionchio's defense of the Papal Curia may indirectly refer to homosexual relationships under the guise of mythological allusion. Although he does not necessarily condemn these relationships, his dialogue may contain more criticism than scholars generally allow. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
