Summary/Abstract: Homosexuality is not a phenomenon of the new era, nor it is a “fad”, it dates back to the beginning of humankind. The socio-political environment, socio-economic moments, cultural development, military campaigns, the position of woman during a particular period in history, were fertile soil for the creation of an acceptable model of behavior in a society. The intended objective of this paper is to analyze pederasty from legal-historical and legal-anthropological aspects. However, in order for any judgment to be made about this unusual phenomenon, which includes custom and law, its essence, history and evolution and causes must be taken into account. Methodologically, by analyzing historical facts, the paper is trying to present opinions in favor and against the acceptance of homosexual behavior as ethical in the global sense.
