  1. And what about monks and nuns?? Remember these thousands-years-old canons among these people in Albania are laws based on human will to follow these relative right conducts, and no form of divine punishement was ever involved through the milleniums, which shows a respectable level of consciusness. Albanian traditional unwritten canonical (interesting for who is into cultures and articles like this) : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kanun_(Albania)#Origin Wikipedia’s article is a good start. Greets from an albanian.

  2. Hi jjVincent
    As long as this was a free choice , I think it is a pity the tradition dies out.

      Iben, I would love to meet some of these Sworn Virgins. I do wonder how many make/made the choice because they felt they had to out of familial responsibility or because their other options were much poorer in comparison, rather than a genuine desire to live that way.
