While the most famous (and common) claim is that Jesus had a relationship with Mary Magdalene, major waves have been made throughout history arguing that Jesus was gay.
On May 30, 1593, the playwright and poet Christopher “Kit” Marlowe was found brutally murdered. According to an autopsy report and several eyewitness reports, Marlowe had spent the day at the house of Mrs. Eleanor Bull in Deptford, South London, before being fatally stabbed in the eye. The dagger struck slightly above his right eye and drove two inches into his brain. Though he was not even 30, Marlowe had already made his impression on the English literati with his Doctor Faustus. His exclamation “Was this the face that launched a thousand ships?” lives on in literary and pop-cultural folklore even today.
