Abstract

 

Ut non diligat vir uxorem sicut adulteram — sexuality in medieval Poland as seen by the preachers

How can the attitudes of medieval people towards any manifestations of sexuality be examined? The objective of the study is to reveal the utility of sermons in research on sexuality in medieval Poland. Knowing that the content of the studied sermons is frequently set in the reality of everyday life, it is not unfounded to expect that any kinds of behaviour and attitudes criticized and con­demned by preachers constitute a credible reflection of the customs typical for the inhabitants of medieval Poland. One can therefore discover what kind of sexually motivated behaviour was per­mitted, what attitudes were expected and what eluded any control, shaping the reality and customs of medieval Poland.
