The Dark Box
Full Product Description
Confession, he shows, has always fed an obsessive cycle of guilt and relief; since the 16th century, seclusion of two individuals in the intimate 'dark box', often discussing sexual actions and thoughts, has eroticised the experience of confession. When, in 1905, Pius X made confession a weekly, rather than yearly, ritual and lowered the age at which confession began to seven, the horrific cases of child abuse which have haunted the Catholic church in the 20th century became an inevitability.
