About this work

Description

"Un religieux, surpris avec une femme pendant son voeu, est puni rigoureusement. On lui perce le cou avec un fer chaud, on lui passe dans l'ouverture une chaîne de dix brasses de long, & on le promène dans cet état tout nu par les rues, jusqu'à ce qu'il ait amassé une certaine somme d'argent pour son couvent. Un autre religieux, qui le suit, lui donne des coups de fouet toutes les fois qu'il lui voit porter les mains à sa chaîne pour se soulager."--B. Picart, Cérémonies religieuses des peuples de la Chine
