The ancient stories of Pero, who breastfed her father, and of the unnamed Roman daughter who breastfed her mother, were of tremendous interest to artists and their audiences from the Renaissance to the Enlightenment. The Roman Charity investigates the iconography of the breastfeeding daughter from the perspective of queer sexuality and erotic maternity. The book explores the popularity of a topic that renders modern viewers uneasy, but appealed to early modern observers for its eroticizing shock value, its ironic take on the venerable concept of charity, and its implied critique of patriarchal power structures. It tries to understand why and how early modern viewers found an incestuous adult breastfeeding scene "good to think with," and aims at expanding and queering our notions of early modern sexuality.
