Item #7912

A record of the famous Castlehaven sodomy trial in 1631, which fed on the “sodomite-hunting” that was rampant during the period. The 2nd Earl of Castlehaven was convicted of abetting the rape of his wife and of committing sodomy with his male servants and the trial was a spectacular sex scandal, resulting in the execution of Castlehaven and his servants.
