Images of lust by Anthony Weir
An abundance of extraordinary sculptures considered obscene by today's standards may be found on churches in Britain, Ireland, France and Spain. This book examines their origins and purposes and sees them not as magical fertility symbols or idols in ancient pre-Christian religions, but as serious works that dealt with the sexual customs and salvation of medieval folk and thus gave support to the Church's moral teaching.
