Neither Henry of Blois, bishop of Gruetli laager TN housewives personalsnor Roger Niger of London Interacial dating pittsburgh, nor Anthony Bek of Durham were ever considered for canonisation, but all three were noted for their virginity.
It is, however, hard to avoid the conclusion that the possession of Hairy girl virtue was an extremely useful tool in the battle to turn a good reputation into a popular and durable cult. Given that virginity was clearly of great importance to the English episcopate, at least during Rochester try to lose virginity no men twelfth and thirteenth centuries, it is now necessary to consider why this was so.
Christian reverence of virginity, which was believed to bring the individual closer to God, was as old as the faith. However, the virginity of the earth-bound priest was considered to be more meritorious than that of the angels, since angels are not subject to temptation- whereas the priest, as a fallen man, was subject to the frailties of human flesh, Rochester try to lose virginity no men must overcome.
Since Hugh emulated Martin, Beautiful couples looking horny sex Tucson suggests, he is deserving of the same spiritual rewards including canonisation as his predecessor.
Yet the rewards of virginity were Housewives wants real sex Kukuihaele merely spiritual.

But it was also used as a means to gain authority, as a tool to hasten the removal of the old guard, and to justify the rapid takeover of the English bishoprics by the reformed monastic orders in the decades around Then, in the late eleventh and early twelfth centuries, this centuries-old tradition was given new impetus in the with the introduction of compulsory clerical celibacy for all priests.
As monastic ideals were rapidly imposed on all clerics, the sexuality of the secular clergy became a much-discussed and heavily scrutinised topic.
In part, this was achieved by ordination, and the post-Gregorian priest was also distinguished from the laity by his role in the celebration of the Eucharist. Whilst this sacrament had long been Lady want real sex MD Brookeville 20833 the heart of Christian devotional practice, it gained further ificance during the twelfth century, partly due to a growing emphasis on transubstantiation which passed into doctrine at the Fourth Lateran Council of From the twelfth century onwards, theologians became increasingly troubled by problem of the potential pollution of the priestly body by involuntary nocturnal emissions of semen.

Whilst celibacy was a ificant step in the right direction, only true virginity could guarantee that the bishop was always ready to perform his most important function. Although the ability to celebrate Mass served as an important marker of priestly difference, the division between the clergy and the laity was also supposed to be reinforced by a new set of distinctively priestly behaviours.
Priests were distinguished from layman by the many activities in which they did not engage- including sex, but also a range of other masculine pursuits from which the clergy were now barred, such as tavern-frequenting and brawling. Only virginity was enough to distinguish a bishop from those of his contemporaries who had enjoyed a dissolute youth, or married and fathered children before entering holy orders.
Whilst the move towards a celibate priesthood was initiated by papal legislation, its implementation was achieved largely due to the efforts of the episcopate, including the examination of candidates for ordination and increased monitoring of parish priests.

Nor was it, as Vauchez suggests, a mere appendage to the real episcopal virtues of leadership and moderation. Exemplary personal conduct, including unimpeachable sexual behaviour, was a crucial component of episcopal leadership.
It was good for a bishop to be celibate, but increasingly it was thought desirable for a bishop to be more than merely a good man. He was a model man, living his life in emulation of the saints and providing his flock both clergy and laity with an example of Christian living. It might even be claimed that he was the perfect man: a virgin. References 1.
