.
Lev., xx. 13: (Douai Transl.) + Glossa Ordinaria (on  "qui dormierit cum masculo"): "This sin is a wrong against Nature, and so it is decreed that it be punished with death. For spiritually he who is strong-minded is also masculine (masculus). For he who is foremost in the virtues  is named in the divine scripture "vir" (man). Let us beware to become effeminate from evil words or actions, lest we are broken up with this and die together. "
Rom., i. 26 + Glossa Ordinaria (interlinear): "First in the ardor of the libido which is a passion of Nature and not to be named, later in the act."

“All abbesses deserve to die
Who order subject nuns to lie
In dire distress & lonely bed
Only for giving love its head.
I speak who know, for I’ve been fed
For loving, long on stony bread.”         (12th century nun from Auxerre, translated Ann Matter,
The Boswell Thesis, 153)
