Now this is too great not to share: the History Blog recently posted a flowchart from James A. Brundage’s book Law, Sex, and Christian Society in Medieval Europe ‘compiled from many penitentials which helps the pious man figure out if he can have lawful intercourse’. There are so many brakes in this one. We’re glad we’ve moved on to the 21st century.
