Let me make it clear at the start: This is a serious question that needs researching and I have Latin texts to prove it.
Well, one Latin text at any rate. I was looking through these and found by flogging on p in the Capitulare monasticum I of the following clause c In a text on monks, those who are getting whipped are probably the monks themselves, since the Benedictine Rule specifically decrees corporal punishment for them in some cases chapters 23, 28, Or rather, why might some monasteries think it was reasonable to be beating their monks in the nude?
It was only when I came to think about the matter a bit that I realised my mental images of floggings are probably severely misleading on the crucial matter of clothing. When I think about them, I tend to be thinking either of naked century sailors probably via Hornblower novels or Christ getting whipped before the crucifixion sensual pantyhose sex centuries of art.
By the eighteenth century trousers have been invented, so defiant heroes can show off their muscled naked before being whipped, while remaining decently clad lower down. What about Benedictine monks?
Benedict makes allowances for climate, but he thinks the standard clothing should be a tunic, a flogging, a scapularstockings and shoes.
