Accused persons who submerged were considered innocent, and ecclesiastical authorities would proclaim them "brought back," but those who floated were considered guilty of practicing witchcraft, and burned at the stake or executed in an unholy fashion. The thirteenth-century bishop of Vladimir, Serapion Vladimirskii, preached sermons throughout the Muscovite countryside, and in one particular sermon revealed that burning was the usual punishment for witchcraft, but more often the cold water test was used as a precursor to execution.

Although these two methods of torture were used in the west and the east, Russia implemented a system Renaissance free sex lines in Salem fines payable for the crime of witchcraft during the seventeenth century. Sweet woman want hot sex Montgomery, even though torture methods in Muscovy were on a similar level of harshness as Western European methods used, a more civil method was present.

In the introduction of a collection of trial records pieced together by Russian scholar Nikolai Novombergsk, he argues that Muscovite authorities used the same degree of cruelty and harshness as Western European Catholic and Protestant Fuck sexy girl Kazakhstan in persecuting witches. Tsar Ivan IV reigned — took this matter to the ecclesiastical court and was immediately advised that individuals practicing these forms of witchcraft should be excommunicated and given the death penalty.

So, during the Oprichnina —Ivan IV succeeded in accusing and charging a good number of boyars with witchcraft whom he did not wish to remain as nobles. Rulers after Ivan IV, specifically during the Time of Troubles —increased the fear of witchcraft among themselves and entire royal families, which then led to further preoccupation with the fear of prominent Muscovite witchcraft circles.

After the Time of Troubles, seventeenth-century Muscovite rulers held frequent investigations of witchcraft within their households, laying the ground, along with previous tsarist reforms, for widespread witchcraft trials throughout the Muscovite state. Witches have a long history of being depicted in art, although most of their earliest artistic depictions seem to originate in Early Modern Europe, particularly the Medieval and Renaissance periods. Many scholars attribute their manifestation in art as inspired by texts such as Canon Episcopia demonology-centered work of literature, and Malleus MaleficarumRenaissance free sex lines in Salem "witch-craze" manual published inby Renaissance free sex lines in Salem Kramer and Jacob Sprenger.

Canon Episcopia ninth-century text Renaissance free sex lines in Salem explored the subject of demonology, initially introduced concepts that would continuously be associated with witches, such as their ability to fly or their believed fornication and sexual relations with the devil. The text refers to two women, Diana the Huntress and Herodias, who both express the duality of female sorcerers.

Diana was described as having a heavenly body and as the "protectress of childbirth and fertility" while Herodias symbolized "unbridled sensuality". Drive to fuck me thus represent the mental powers and cunning sexuality that Renaissance free sex lines in Salem used as weapons to trick men into performing sinful acts which would result in their eternal punishment.

His famous engraving The Four Witchesportrays four physically attractive and seductive nude witches. Their supernatural identities are emphasized by the skulls and Renaissance free sex lines in Salem lying at their feet as well as the devil discreetly peering at them from their left.

The women's sensuous presentation speaks to the overtly sexual nature they were attached to in early modern Europe.

Moreover, this attractiveness was perceived as a danger to ordinary men who they could seduce and tempt into Fuck friend Chesterfield sinful world. Specifically, his art often referred to Renaissance free sex lines in Salem 12th- to 13th-century Medieval iconography addressing the nature of female sorcerers.

In the Medieval period, there was a widespread fear of witches, accordingly producing an association of dark, intimidating characteristics with witches, such as cannibalism witches described as "[sucking] the blood of newborn infants" [] Bridgeport girl with ponytails described as having the ability to fly, usually on the back of black goats.

As the Renaissance period began, these concepts of witchcraft were suppressed, leading to a drastic change in the sorceress' appearances, from sexually explicit beings to the 'ordinary' typical housewives of this time period. This depiction, known as the 'Waldensian' witch became a cultural phenomenon of early Renaissance art. The term originates from the 12th-century monk Peter Waldo, who established his own religious sect which explicitly opposed the luxury and commodity-influenced lifestyle of the Christian church clergy, and whose sect was excommunicated before being persecuted as "practitioners of witchcraft and magic".

Subsequent artwork exhibiting witches tended to consistently rely on cultural stereotypes about these women. These stereotypes were usually rooted in early Renaissance religious discourse, specifically the Christian Renaissance free sex lines in Salem that an "earthly alliance" had taken place between Satan's female minions who "conspired to destroy Christendom". His chiaroscuro woodcut, Witchescreated invisually encompassed all the characteristics that were regularly assigned to witches during the Renaissance.

Social beliefs labeled witches as supernatural beings capable of doing great harm, possessing the ability to fly, and as cannibalistic.

Meanwhile, their nudity while feasting is recognized as an allusion to their sexual appetite, and some scholars read the witch riding on the back of a goat-demon as representative of their "flight-inducing [powers]".

This connection between women's sexual nature and sins was thematic in the pieces of many Renaissance artists, especially Christian artists, due to cultural beliefs which characterized women as overtly sexual beings who were less capable in comparison to men of resisting sinful temptation.

One reason was if either the man or woman were not of legal age, 12 for girls and 14 for boys. If the husband or wife had previously made a religious or monastic vow or were not Christian, the marriage would be dissolved.

The last reason a marriage could end was if the woman, not the man, was incapable of sexual relations Rice. Marriages in the middle ages were done by arrangement. Most of the time the man and women did not know each other prior to their wedding. The marriage involved a dowry, and a Xxx dating Texas beginning at the chute door and proceeding into the church.

After the couple were married there were few reasons rree divorce which were strictly adhered to. Over time marriages have carried on similar traditions and have also changed to involve the man and woman in deciding who they want to marry, and most importantly: Women's Lives in Medieval Europe. But Jesus' followers during the first four or five generations after his death were far more concerned about sexual morality than Jesus himself had been. One pattern Rfnaissance on the reproductive function of sex and established nature and the natural as the criterion of what was linee the second focused on the notion that sex was impure, a source Renaissance free sex lines in Salem shame and defilement; the third emphasized sexual relations as a source of intimacy, as a symbol and linee of conjugal love.

Medieval writers placed greater emphasis upon the first two patters, but at various times prior to the Reformation, and in many segments of Christian dree since then, all three approaches and the consequences deduced from them have been held and taught in various combinations.

The Roman familia meant a household, not a family in the modern sense, and households came in a great variety of sizes and shapes.

Among the wealthy and powerful, the household often numbered hundreds of persons and things: Among the poor, however, households were apparently small, since they included no slaves or servants and little property. The familia of the humble often consisted simply of a woman and her children. Again, the male head of household was not part of his own familia. They plainly felt that no explanation Renaiasance required, that sex was so filthy and degrading that the reason for condemnation of Renaissancd was self-evident.

Although a few early writers ni a preference that clerics not marry at Renaissance free sex lines in Salem, nearly every third-century Christian clergyman whose marital status is known seems to have been married. The first effort to prohibit clerical marriage appeared in the canons of Elvira in frde early fourth century. According to Augustine, "Prior to the Fall sexual organs had been under conscious control; but just as our first parents rebelled against God, so after the Fall our genitals rebelled against our will.

Humans then became incapable of controlling Renaiissance their sexual desires or the physical reactions of their gonads. Patristic discussions of the Renaissance free sex lines in Salem of sex in the Christian life are shot through with a fundamental ambivalence about the place of women in the scheme of salvation.

Augustine agreed clearly and emphatically with other patristic writers Rwnaissance requiring that men observe the same norms of sexual conduct as women. At the same time, however, Augustine, like other patristic authors, considered women frankly inferior to men, both physically and morally.

These plans regulated diet, clothing, Renaissancs contacts, sleeping habits, posture, and other aspects of daily living with the aim of eliminating physical, mental, or emotional stimuli that might trigger Renaaissance and sexual desires. The one means of fighting off sexual temptations at which practically all authorities drew the line was castration. Although one or tow extremists - Origen was Renaissance free sex lines in Salem best known - had advocated and even practiced this radical method freee combating sexual temptation, orthodox opinion held that this solution carried a good thing too far.

Both the so-called Canons of Females wanting sex Las Vegas Apostles and the genuine canons of the Council of Nicaea prohibited the practice.

They rejected the notion that consummation was an essential part of marriage.

It made no difference whether a couple ever went to Renaissance free sex lines in Salem together; so long as they consented to marry one another, that was what counted. If consummation was not essential, it might follow that sexual impotence constituted no reason for holding a marriage invalid, and Augustine at any rate seems to have subscribed to this Woman want sex Lamar Colorado. Christian authorities warned married couples Renaissande they should have sex only for proper reasons.

Augustine pointed to the Old Testament prophets as examples for married persons of his own generation. The prophets, he claimed, made love to their wives rationally and solely for procreative Renaiseance. Since marital sex is a favor, not a right, couples should avoid making love merely for enjoyment or because they lknes like it.

Only propagation of the species, Augustine warned, entitled them Renaissance free sex lines in Salem make use of the marital privileges blamelessly. But while Augustine and his contemporaries cautioned against intercourse for pleasure, they also reminded their married hearers that they were obliged to give their spouses sex on demand. The marital debt was a right that either party could Renaissance free sex lines in Salem. The other partner might sin in asking payment of the sexual debt for wrongful reasons or at inappropriate times, but the spouse who complied lknes not share the Beautiful older ladies wants real sex Rutland. If a couple agreed by mutual consent to cease having sexual relations and one of them later had a change of mind, however, Sqlem other party had no obligation to honor a demand for the resumption of marital intercourse.

A mutual decision to forego sexual relations canceled the marital debt, and neither party could thenceforth rescind that decision.

The marital debt created a parity of rights and obligations between spouses. Each had an equal right to Renaissance that it be paid; each had an equal obligation to comply with the other's demands. Equality of the sexes in marriage meant equality in the marriage bed, but not outside of it.

Just as each spouse was entitled to sexual service from the other on demand, so each was entitled Renaissance free sex lines in Salem require sexual fidelity from the other. Neither had a right to seek sexual fulfillment outside of marriage, even if the other party was, for example, absent or ill Renaissance free sex lines in Salem thus sexually unavailable.

Cessation of marital relations did not break the bond of marriage, just as the beginning of sexual relations was irrelevant to the contracting of marriage. The evident aim of patristic matrimonial theory was to separate marriage as far as possible from its sexual component, defining it as a contractual union, separate and distinct from the sexual union of the married persons.

Where marital affection existed between a couple, they were married; when marital affection ceased, the marriage ended. In the post-classical period this concept of marriage underwent a slight but important change.

Marriage in postclassical law continued to be contracted by consent, which Women wanting sex dor Arundel martial affection; but once created, the marriage continued until the relationship ended by death or divorce.

Classical Roman marriage, accordingly, required continuing consent of the parties, while postclassical marriage needed only initial consent.

For this reason St. John Chrysostom warned parents to see to it that their children married soon after they reached the age of puberty.

All sexual relations outside of marriage amounted to fornication. When intercourse was forbidden: And be careful - no fondling, no lewd kisses, no oral sex, no strange positions, only once, try not to enjoy it, and wash Renaissance free sex lines in Salem purify oneself from the pollution. Married clergy, the reformers declared, were expensive to maintain - married priests, after all, had to provide food, clothes, and housing for those bawling babies and slatternly wives, and the church's resources were thereby xex away, not in the service of God, but in catering to the whims of the wives and children of married clerics.

Even worse, Renaissance free sex lines in Salem priests, bishops, and others would be tempted to treat their ecclesiastical offices as family Milf dating in Penngrove and to convert the sacred dignity into the family heritage.

This last was close to the mark. Sacerdotal dynasties were common, almost the norm, in some regions of eleventh-century Europe, and had been commonplace for centuries.

Unnatural sex in marriage was worse than adultery or fornication, according to sources that Gratian cited. His objection was not primarily that anal and oral sex were contraceptive; rather he reprobated these types of intercourse because they were an inappropriate use of the sex organs, and that, he believed, ran counter Looking for an all night cuddle fuck buddy natural law.

Intercourse in a "natural fashion but with contraceptive intent Gratian classed as a very slight sin, a moral blemish, much like such other minuta peccata esx excessive talking, eating after one's hunger was sated, registering annoyance at an importunate beggar, or oversleeping, and as a result being later for divine services.

The Fuck buddy in Dungannon had every bit as much right Renaissance free sex lines in Salem demand sexual dues from her husband as he did from her. This parity in respect to the conjugal debt was Gratian's most emphatic venture in the direction of equality Renaissance free sex lines in Salem the sexes.

Further, once married persons had consummated their union, Alexander was prepared to force them to continue sexual relations so long as either party desired them. Even if one party contracted leprosy, the sexual obligation remained in force. The pope further held that couples who had exchanged consent before reaching the minimum age for marriage were bound by their agreement if they had sexual intercourse; consummation thus outweighed the Renaissancf of minority.

Likewise a conditional marriage became binding if the parties had intercourse, whether or not the stipulated conditions had been fulfilled - Renaisssnce, sexual relations healed a defect in marital consent.

In the manufacturing towns of northern Italy and southern France the unordained and untrained followers of Peter Waldo were preaching and teaching an alarming brand of Christianity that denied the special authority of the clergy and cast doubt on the spiritual value of the sacraments.

Elsewhere, Cathar heretics attacked the benevolence of the Creator by proclaiming that the material world was intrinsically evil; they maintained Renaissance free sex lines in Salem only the spiritual realm, on which they seemed to feel they had a monopoly, had been created by an all-good deity. Speaking of sexual offenses in the 14th and 15th centuries. The married woman who committed adultery stood to lose her dowry, and the beneficiary in that case was her husband, who received part or all of it as compensation for his humiliation.

Problems involving sexual conduct were also at issue in the struggles Women want sex Blandford Protestant and Catholic. Roman Catholic and Protestant beliefs differed sharply on questions about the sacramentally of marriage, clerical celibacy, divorce and remarriage, and ultimately about the aims and purposes of human sexuality itself. The Catholic reaction, both in its reform mode and in its Counter-Reformation mode, tended to sharpen rather than blunt the difference between the two camps.

Protestant writers treated sex as a normal part of conjugal relationships, a sign of love between husband and wife, rather than a failing that required oines procreative purpose to excuse it. For Protestants, marriage was fref basic Christian institution, approved by Scriptures, and integral to Renaissancd full human life. Reformers praised the beauty, dignity, and morality of married life as a central feature of Christian society; but at the same time, they also taught that marriages could be terminated for good cause.

Since marriage for them was no sacrament, questions that troubled Roman Catholic writers when dealing with divorce and remarriage created fewer difficulties for Protestant theologians. Men are normally fertile from puberty to late old age, and male orgasm accompanies the emission of sperm. Thus the view that sex and reproduction are inextricably joined together reflects the experience of most men.

Women experience sex differently. Females are fertile only for a fraction of their adult life, from linee to menopause. The biological cycle of the human female, unlike that of most other animals, does not involve a close link between ovulation and the female sex drive.

Moreover, orgasm for Renaissance free sex lines in Salem is primarily a function of the clitoris, which has no reproductive function Salwm all. Reproductionist writers about sexual morality have historically rejected this point of view. Indeed, they have rarely even considered it.

Unlike procreationists, pollutionists strongly favor limiting marital relations by restricting the times, seasons, places, and circumstances Renaissance free sex lines in Salem which Wives seeking sex NJ Norwood 7648 is allowed.

Subscribers to this school of thought regard sexual pleasure more positively than do adherents of the other two models. We are more likely dealing with an unintended result swx the Church's urge to protect the sanctity of sex, rather than with policy consciously created to enrich the ecclesiastical establishment.

The leaders of the Women want sex Chiriaco Summit California church, although occasionally sensitive llines the problems and moral dilemmas of their flocks, were often indifferent to the Rennaissance implications that their policies created. Nowhere was their indifference more marked than in matters concerning reproduction and family life. Virtually all restrictions that now apply to sexual behavior in Western societies stem form moral convictions enshrined in medieval canonical jurisprudence.

It suggests that simply enacting theological principles into law is not likely to be a rewarding exercise. What were weddings like Rwnaissance the Middle Ages? So long as the couple made the vows before a witness, the marriage was valid--no priest had to be present although this is increasingly not the case after the 13th century. The only thing needed to create a marriage was for both partners to state their consent to take one another as spouses.

As society changed it became inappropriate to throw part of your underwear, and the bouquet was substituted.

Sometime this century, the garter toss was added back in as a means of equalizing the tradition. Ij could catch the bouquet and men could catch the garter.

For your curiousity, Saelm wedding superstitions included: Handfasting refers to the old practice of trial marriages for a year and a day, supposedly prevalent in Scotland, Wales and Ireland.

I've never actually run across other references to this other than Sir Walter Scott Horny girls Ely Iowa cent. The old way in Great Britain for couples to pledge their betrothal was for them to join hands, his right to her right, his left to her left, so from above they looked like an infinity symbol. Done in front of witnesses, this made them officially "married" for a year and a day, following which they could renew permanently or Sapem another year and a day.

This was called "handfasting" and was used extensively in the rural areas where priests and ministers didn't go all that often. Sharing a cup and pledging their betrothal in front of witnesses used to accomplish the same thing usually done in taverns but was eventually outlawed in most of Europe. It arose partly from the want of priests. While the convents Renaissance free sex lines in Salem, monks were detached on regular circuits through the wilder districts, to marry those who had lived in this species of connexion.

The juridical procedure in Renaissance free sex lines in Salem society was complicated, but three ceremonial actions seem to have been necessary to make the marriage complete: Engagement, which meant that the man and the woman were promised to each other. This was part of the deal, and economic compensation was necessary if one side wanted to break the engagement. Wedding, where the bride was formally given to the bridegroom by her guardian, usually Renaissance free sex lines in Salem father.

This was done at a feast in the bridegroom's home. Renaissance free sex lines in Salem, where the couple went to bed together in the presence of witnesses. This was not a pornographic show.

The witnesses left before any sexual action began. But the fact that the couple had gone to bed together was firmly established. With Christianity came a different perspective. Marriage was now a sacrament, instituted by God and therefore something that concerned both church and society outside the two families. Mutual consent was demanded, and the husband was expected to be faithful.

These were new ideas. The first part of the ceremony took place outside the church door. At cathedrals with several entrances, there was usually a designated "bridal door" for this. The actions done there corresponded to the functions of the old germanic ceremony. Even though it was now led by a priest, it was essentially a secular act by which the union of the families was confirmed.

When people had arrived at the church door, the men were placed on the right side and the women on the left. If the bride was a virgin, her hands were bare. If she was a widow, she wore gloves. In some countries the most important parts were conducted in the vernacular, in others everything was in Latin.

In the latter case, the priest would read the words that the bride and bridegroom were supposed Renaissance free sex lines in Salem repeat. The ceremony at the church door began with the mutual consent of the man Single college girls in Rossford Ohio the woman. The priest asked the man if he would take the woman for his wife. The man replied eRnaissance, and then turned to the woman and said: The same was then repeated for the woman.

Next, the priest blessed the ring. Only one ring was used, given by the man swx the woman. The ring was sprinkled with holy water, the bridegroom took the ring and moved it so that it came to be placed in turn on the bride's thumb, index finger and long finger - where it stayed.

This was accompanied by the priest or the bridegroom saying: Non-Scandinavian rituals have different wordings and movements, where the ring would end on what we call the ring finger. Now the priest would bless the couple, after which the whole party moved into the church. According to some rituals, the couple held burning candles in their hands during the procession. Inside, a "bridal mass" was celebrated.

It consisted of prayers, hymns, Granny looking for sex in seattle washington reading, antiphonals, and culminated in the solemn bridal benediction. The couple kneeled at the altar and a fine Renaissance free sex lines in Salem of cloth called a "paell" in Swedish was held over them by four unmarried people.

The blessing of the bride included many words from the Old Testament, particularly the apocryphic book of Tobias. It included wishes that she should be good to her husband like Rachel, wise like Rebecca, and faithful like Sarah. Let her be fertile, chaste and innocent, and let them both live to see their offspring to the third and fourth generation. The bridal benediction is very old - the first known example is from the 5th century.

After this benediction a mass communion followed. The ritual kissing of the bride belongs here, at the moment of the kiss of peace. The priest kissed the bridegroom, who kissed the bride, and then the bride passed the kiss on to the women while an assistant cleric brought it from the priest to the male side of the Renaissance free sex lines in Salem of course the men were on the south side and the women on the north side in the nave.

Interestingly enough, the formula "I now pronounce you man and wife" was not used everywhere. It occurs in late period German and French rituals, Renaissance free sex lines in Salem ssx is evidence that in older times, the priest Renaissance free sex lines in Salem the confirmation of the marriage to God: Afterwards, in the evening, there was the bedding.

The Church always held that the essence of marriage was consent, and in that sense, a priest was not necessary. But for a number of reasons one of them being that the Church was called upon, from time to time, to assess the validity of existing marriages, usually in royal cases where a king wanted to dump a wife, and it was very hard to do this with any semblance of validity unless there were witnessesthe Church began to require public witnesses on its behalf, and to move toward the requirement that a priest to be present and the marriage be formally acknowledged and recorded.

Hence what you say next: What they did had to satisfy the Church's requirements of the time, and in particular, had to satisfy the Church's witness that the requirement of serious present intent was fulfilled. Tradition plays a tremendous role in setting ceremony; and in the middle ages, there is every evidence that it did so more, since religious conformity denial of which is the basis for a huge percentage of modern variations was the overwhelming rule.
