A rare, 16th-century book on gender roles, human sexuality, and misogyny.

 

Giovanni Battista Modio was a 16th-century Italian philosopher and author who is best known for his famous book ‘Il Convito’.

Modio’s most popular work has since been considered a classic in misogynistic literature and describes traditional misogynistic arguments against marriage. (Cox, p.123). Modio makes his arguments based on the traditions of Roman mythology and how the Roman gods acted toward sexuality and relations with women. (Giannetti, p. 121).
