Title : Violenza al corpo di una santa: Fra agiographica e pornografia- A proposito di Douceline di Digne [Mortification of the flesh, including punishment of sexual organs, features prominently in the lives of holy women; Douceline of Digne is an extreme example of the phenomenon, becoming insensible to stimuli when in a trance; she became the presiding spirit of a beguinage in Marseille, and the community preserved her memory and developed her cult; during her lifetime, her body, when insensible, was subjected to tortures to gratify the curiosity of men; this served both as a test of her sanctity and as a kind of counter-pornography, intended to produce revulsion against the flesh; often, however, trial was made by the merely curious, like Charles of Anjou and his entourage].
