Title : Medieval Western European Views of Sexuality Reflected in the Narratives of Travelers to the Orient [The author briefly surveys four influential travel accounts written in the span of a century. Westrem cites discussion of fornication, adultery, polygamy, and incest. The authors, even the two churchmen, are surprisingly moderate in their attitudes toward these sexual crimes, although they indicate the increasingly serious nature of the offenses.
