Excersus CXXV: Like Hooters, Without the Subtlety
Was pornography readily available in the late 15th century? At the very least, you could always fall back on the Decameron,
which had been published in 1353, and the Historia de duobus amantibus was released in 1444 and was actually written
by a future Pope! And how much better would the papacy be in modern times if it featured more classy erotic
authors in its midst? Really, though, I think that the "factual accounts" written up by the Church to describe its enemies
did for the 15th century what the Internet does for the current - you had to get through a lot of formalism, but there was
definite fetishist wank material in there, and the invective spilled against the French during the schism was certainly not
always of the evenest temper.
In other news, it looks like I'll have a piece coming up in the next American Atheist Magazine, this one all about the
neural link between World of Warcraft and Christianity, so be on the lookout!
