Unfortunately, the rule of the church was far too powerful in this era to
permit same-sex behavior, particularly among its numerous functionaries in
the monastic orders. While not ceding anything to vulgar Marxism, it must
be pointed out that one of the key motivations was the need to eliminate
the transfer of property from priests to their offspring. Since the church
was one of the wealthiest and most powerful landowners in the feudal era,
this was no mere whim.


CB: Lou , this is a very informative post.

On the above, though. What struck me was that same-sex behavior would be a way to
insure that the priests did not have any offspring. So, this aspect would be a reason
that the church would allow (even if not explicitly) same-sex relations,  so as to
avoid inheritance of church property.
