See Gerd Schwerhoff, "Starke Worte: Blasphemie als theatralische Inszenierung von Mannlichkeit an der Wende vom Mittelalter zur Fruhen Neuzeit" in Martin Dinges, ed., Hausvater, Priest, Kastraten: Zur Konstruktion von Mannlichkeit in Spatmittelalter und Fruher Neuzeit (Gottingen, 1998), 238-263 and his later Zungen wie Schwerter, 305; Maureen Flynn, "Blasphemy and the Play of Anger." Flynn found evidence of blasphemous utterances involving sexual innuendo stemmed from male adolescent exuberance and misbehaviour.
