Many still clink to the rituals of the Middle Ages, scourging themselves with whips, sleeping fully dressed on pallets of straw and rising at night to pray for a world they will never see again. Others are among the most highly trained professionalsMoreMany still clink to the rituals of the Middle Ages, scourging themselves with whips, sleeping fully dressed on pallets of straw and rising at night to pray for a world they will never see again. Others are among the most highly trained professionals in the modern world. Some wear hair shirts and chain girdles. Some wear jeans and sweatshirts. Some date and believe this chastity business is a bore. Others, including a 27-year-old prima ballerina of the Paris Opera, find a life of celibacy, discipline and devotion utterly fulfilling.
