In this chapter I look at how female homoeroticism was represented in pre-modern Islamicate societies. To do so, I look at three typologies of texts – lexicographies, medical treatise and legal discourses – from the 10th to the 13th centuries. In this why I tried to recreate, at least partially, how discourses around female homoeroticism were constructed in the period under analysis
building on the Foucauldian notion of discourse.
