To live a chaste life
To withstand the temptations of the flesh, take powdered agate and run through a cloth drenched in wolf grease and, with this cloth, gird up your loins like a belt. In addition, a man must carry the heart of a male quail on him and a woman must carry the heart of a female quail. The effect will be stronger if the heart of the bird is wrapped in a piece of wolf skin.

Saint Paphnuce The Panopolitain, a lonely Egyptian, having heard the fame of Thais, admirable and adored courtesan, decided to bring her back into the bosom of the Lord. He went to find her, gave her gold pieces and, despite his great age, undertook to make love to her. But an Archangel was substituted for the saint and the courtesan was so amazed she abandoned her wealth and, burning her palace, she followed him to the Thebaid.
