  • Title: La verginita e Cluny [Cluniac monks valued not just chastity but virginity. The Virgin Mary was the model of this quality. The "Vita" of Abbot Maiolus of Cluny emphasized his virginity. Some lives of Cluniac abbots combined an emphasis on virginity with one on masculinity; others combined it with a focus on angelic asexuality. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
