St. Anselm of Canterbury announced Patron of the Free Anglican Mission Society by The Right Revered Lark J. Muncy
Anselm, Archbishop of Canterbury from 1093 – 1109, is important for the evidence he represents that the hostility of some Christians to homoerotic relationships has not always been typical of the institutional church. He has two claims in particular to attention from modern gay and lesbian Catholics. First, he is one of a band of notable medieval clerics who although personally celibate, exhibited a clear homoerotic sensibility, whose affectionate letters to his band of intimate male friends contribute to what John Boswell has described as a “medieval flowering” of a gay subculture, which was not again equalled until the latter part of the twentieth century. He reminds us also, that just as there was then a homoerotic culture deeply embedded in the catholic clergy, exactly the same applies today.
