MOLINA ARTALOYTIA, Francisco. More piety than profanities: an expert report by Dr. Egas Moniz on homosexuality. Dynamis [online]. 2016, vol.36, n.1, pp.211-231. ISSN 2340-7948.

At the beginning of the 20th century, the noted Nobel prize-winning Portuguese neurologist Egas Moniz made an expert analysis on homosexuality in a marriage annulment case of major value as an example of the effective application of sexological knowledge of that period. Contemporary republican legislation established marriage annulment in medical terms and punished relations between persons of the same sex, or contra natura. In his report, Moniz attempted to interpret distinctive elements of the life of the subject using sexological categories, illustrating the interaction between these categories and the changing forms adopted by homosexuality (or homosexual people) of the time.

Keywords : homosexuality; Egas Moniz; marriage annulment; Portugal.
