Virginity, Penetrative

Virginity, Penetrative such an extraordinary or perfect gift of chastity, to which some have pretended, that it overpowered those by whom they have been surrounded, and created in them an insensibility to the pleasures of the flesh. The Virgin Mary (q.v.), according to some Romanists, was possessed of this gift, which was those who beheld her, notwithstanding her beauty, to have no sentiments but such as were consistent with chastity.
