INDEX OF AUTHORS

 

[64] Sodoma's life and temperament have been studied and his pictures 

copiously reproduced by Elisar von Kupffer, _Jahrbuch fuer sexuelle 

Zwischenstufen_, Bd. ix, 1908, p. 71 et seq., and by R.H. Hobart Cust, 

_Giovanni Antonio Bazzi_. 

 

[65] Cellini, _Life_, translated by J.A. Symonds, introduction, p. xxxv, 

and p. 448. Queringhi (_La Psiche di B. Cellini_, 1913) argues that 

Cellini was not homosexual. 

 

[66] See the interesting account of Duquesnoy by Eekhoud (_Jahrbuch fuer 

sexuelle Zwischenstufen_, Bd. ii, 1899), an eminent Belgian novelist who 

has himself been subjected to prosecution on account of the pictures of 

homosexuality in his novels and stories, _Escal-Vigor_ and _Le Cycle 

Patibulaire_ (see _Jahrbuch fuer sexuelle Zwischenstufen_, Bd. iii, 1901). 

 

[67] See Justi's _Life of Winkelmann_, and also Moll's _Die Kontraere 

Sexualempfindung_, third edition, 1899, pp. 122-126. In this work, as well 

as in Raffalovich's _Uranisme et Unisexualite_, as also in Moll's 

_Beruehmte Homosexuelle_ (1910) and Hirschfeld's _Die Homosexualitaet_, p. 

650 et seq., there will be found some account of many eminent men who are, 

on more or less reliable grounds, suspected of homosexuality. Other German 

writers brought forward as inverted are Platen, K.P. Moritz, and Iffland. 

Platen was clearly a congenital invert, who sought, however, the 

satisfaction of his impulses in Platonic friendship; his homosexual poems 

and the recently published unabridged edition of his diary render him an 

interesting object of study; see for a sympathetic account of him, Ludwig 

Frey, "Aus dem Seelenleben des Grafen Platen," _Jahrbuch fuer sexuelle 

Zwischenstufen_, vols. i and vi. Various kings and potentates have been 

mentioned in this connection, including the Sultan Baber; Henri III of 

France; Edward II, William II, James I, and William III of England, and 

perhaps Queen Anne and George III, Frederick the Great and his brother, 

Heinrich, Popes Paul II, Sixtus IV, and Julius II, Ludwig II of Bavaria, 

and others. Kings, indeed, seem peculiarly inclined to homosexuality. 

 

[68] Schultz, _Das Hoefische Leben_, Bd. i, ch. xiii. 

 

 

 

[69] _De Planctu Naturae_ has been translated by Douglas Moffat, _Yale 

Studies in English_, No. xxxvi, 1908. 

 

[70] P. de l'Estoile, _Memoires-Journaux_, vol. ii, p. 326. 

 

[71] Laborde, _Le Palais Mazarin_, p. 128. 

 

[72] Thus she writes in 1701 (_Correspondence_, edited by Brunet, vol. i, 

p. 58): "Our heroes take as their models Hercules, Theseus, Alexander, and 

Caesar, who all had their male favorites. Those who give themselves up to 

this vice, while believing in Holy Scripture, imagine that it was only a 

sin when there were few people in the world, and that now the earth is 

populated it may be regarded as a _divertissement_. Among the common 

people, indeed, accusations of this kind are, so far as possible, avoided; 

but among persons of quality it is publicly spoken of; it is considered a 

fine saying that since Sodom and Gomorrah, the Lord has punished no one 

for such offences."
