In GalatiansSaint Paul says:. Stigmata are primarily associated with Roman Catholicism. Many reported stigmatics are members of Catholic religious orders. Francis of Assisi was the first recorded stigmatic. For over fifty years, St. Padre Pio of Pietrelcina of the Order of Friars Minor Capuchin reported stigmata which were studied by several 20th-century physicians.
Stigmata are notably foreign to the Eastern Orthodox Churchwhich professes no official view on the matter; the first and only stigmatics have been Catholics who lived after the Great Schism of What is important is that the marks are recognised by others as of religious significance.
Reported cases of stigmata take various forms. Many show some or all of five Holy Wounds that were, according to the Bibleinflicted on Jesus during his crucifixion: wounds in the wrists and feet, from nails; and in the side, from a lance. Some stigmatics display wounds to the forehead similar to those caused by the Crown of Thorns.
Many stigmata show recurring bleeding that stops and then starts, at times after receiving Holy Communion ; a significant proportion of stigmatics have shown a strong desire to receive Holy Communion frequently. Some exhibit weight loss, and closer investigation often reveals evidence of fakery. Some stigmatics claim to feel the pain of wounds with no external marks; these are referred to as "invisible stigmata".
The blood from the wounds is said, in some cases, to have a pleasant, perfumed odor, known as the Odour of Sanctity. Individuals who have obtained the stigmata are many times described as The Spyral Stigmata - Ensoph - Bleeding Womb Of Ananke (Il Sangue E LInchiostro Di Fredegisio) overwhelmed with emotions upon receiving the stigmata.
Fable Of A Failed Race - Hawkwind - Quark, Strangeness And Charm case of stigmata is known to have occurred before the thirteenth century.
Francis of Assisi is the first recorded stigmatic in Christian history. The legend states that one morning, near the feast of the Exaltation of the Crossa six-winged angel appeared to Francis while he prayed. As the angel approached, Francis could see that the angel was crucified. He was humbled by the sight, and his heart was filled with elation joined by pain and suffering.
The image The Spyral Stigmata - Ensoph - Bleeding Womb Of Ananke (Il Sangue E LInchiostro Di Fredegisio) nails immediately appeared in his hands and feet, and the wound in his side often seeped blood. Francis' first biographer, Thomas of Celanoreports the event as follows in his First Life of St.
Francis :. When the blessed servant of God saw these things he was filled with wonder, but he did not know what the vision meant. He rejoiced greatly in the benign and gracious expression with which he saw himself regarded by the seraph, whose beauty was indescribable; yet he was alarmed by the fact that the seraph was affixed to the cross and was suffering terribly. Thus Francis rose, one might say, sad and happy, joy and grief alternating in him.
He wondered anxiously what this vision could mean, and his soul was uneasy as it searched for understanding. And as his understanding sought in vain for an explanation and his heart was filled with perplexity at the great novelty of this vision, the marks of nails began to appear in his hands and feet, just as he had seen them slightly earlier in the crucified man above him.
His wrists and feet seemed to be pierced by nails, with the heads of the nails appearing on his wrists and on the upper sides of his feet, the points appearing on the other side. The marks were round on the palm of each hand but elongated on the other side, and small pieces of flesh jutting out from the rest took on the appearance of the nail-ends, bent and driven back. In the same way the marks of nails were impressed on his feet and projected beyond the rest of the flesh.
Moreover, his right side had a large wound as if it had been pierced with a spear, and it often bled so that his tunic and trousers were soaked with his sacred blood. From the records of St. Francis' physical ailments and symptoms, Dr. Edward Frederick Hartung concluded in that he knew what health problems plagued St. Hartung believed that he had an eye ailment known as trachoma and quartan malaria.
Quartan malaria infects the liverspleenand stomachcausing the victim intense pain. One complication of quartan malaria occasionally seen around Francis' time is known as purpuraa purple hemorrhage of blood into the skin.
According to Hartung "If this were the case of St. Francis, he would have been afflicted by ecchymosesan exceedingly large purpura. The purple spots of blood may have been punctured while in the wilderness and there appear as an open wound like that of Christ. A later medical hypothesis was proposed in to explain the wounds, it claimed that St.
Francis may have contracted leprosy. For over fifty years, Padre Pio of Pietrelcina reported stigmata which were studied by several 20th-century physicians, whose independence from the Church is not known. The wounds were examined by Luigi Romanelli, chief physician No Ties - Chet Baker - The Pacific Jazz Collection the City Hospital of Barlettafor about one year.
The physician Angelo Maria Merla noted that the wounds were not tubercular in origin but could not make an official diagnosis without further tests.
Pathologist Amico Bignami of the University of Rome also observed the wounds describing them as shallow. Festa who had originally agreed with Bignami later described the wounds as superficial when covered with a scab. Giorgio Festa noted that "at the edges of the lesions, the skin is perfectly normal and does not show any sign of edemaof penetration, or of redness, even when examined with a good magnifying glass". Alberto Caserta took X-rays of the hands in and found no abnormality in the bone structure.
Giuseppe Sala who worked as a physician for Pio between commented that tests revealed his blood had no signs of abnormality. There were both religious and non-religious critics who accused Padre Pio of faking his stigmata, saying he used carbolic acid to make the wounds.
The historian Sergio Luzzatto recounted that inaccording to one document in the Vatican's archive, Pio had requested carbolic acid from a pharmacist. She said it was Ария «Dignare» Из Кантаты «Dettigen Te Deum» - Гендель* - Музыка На Воде sterilization. Amico Bignami in a report wrote that the wounds were caused by " neurotic necrosis ".
He suggested they had been inflicted unconsciously by suggestion and artificially maintained by iodine that Pio had used as a disinfectant. Inphysician Agostino Gemelli wrote that Pio was a hysteric and his stigmata were self-induced, not of supernatural origin. Throughout his life, Pio had hidden his wounds by wearing fingerless gloves. At death there were no wounds, only "unblemished skin".
First nun saint from India with stigmata is Mariam Thresia Chiramel . She was canonized on 13 October by Pope Francis . Many stigmatics have been exposed for using trickery. There is a link between dietary constriction by self-starvationdissociative mental states and self-mutilationin the context of a religious belief.
A relationship between starvation and self-mutilation has been reported amongst prisoners of war and during famines. Cases of stigmatism fall into two categories: self-inflicted wounds, which may be either cases of fraud or of unconscious self-infliction, and those that are caused by emotional states Self-induced through autosuggestion itching and subsequent scratching of which the individual is unaware is likely to occur in suggestible persons if the stimulus is a mental or actual picture of the Crucifixion used during meditation The Spyral Stigmata - Ensoph - Bleeding Womb Of Ananke (Il Sangue E LInchiostro Di Fredegisio) if the main motive is to receive the stigmata.
The motive behind that may be unconscious conflict and a desire to escape from an intolerable situation into invalidism where one's needs are taken care of. It then becomes a case of hysterical conversion reaction. Many cases of stigmatism can be explained as fraud or unconsciously self-inflicted wounds. In his Stigmata: A Medieval Phenomenon in a Modern AgeTed Harrison suggests that there is no single mechanism whereby the marks of stigmata were produced. Harrison found no evidence from a study of contemporary cases that the marks were supernatural in origin.
He concluded, however, that marks of natural origin need not be hoaxes. Some stigmatics marked themselves in attempt to suffer with Christ as a form of piety.
Others marked themselves accidentally and their marks were noted as stigmata by witnesses. Often marks of human origin produced profound and genuine religious responses.
Harrison also noted the male-to-female ratio of stigmatics, which for many centuries had been of the order of 7 to 1, had changed since the late s to a ratio of 5 to 4. Appearance of stigmata frequently coincided with times when issues of authority loomed large in the Church.
What was significant about stigmatics was not that they were predominantly men, but that they were non-ordained. Having stigmata gave them direct access to the body of Christ without requiring the permission of the Church through the Eucharist.
Only in the last century have priests been stigmatized. One suggestion is painful bruising syndrome may explain rare cases of non self-induced stigmata. Skeptical investigator Joe Nickellwho investigated recent cases of stigmata such as Katya Rivas commented they are indistinguishable from hoaxing. InJogada Pelo Mundo - Elizeth Cardoso - Elizeth Cardoso psychoanalytic study of stigmatic Therese Neumann suggested her stigmata resulted from post-traumatic stress symptoms expressed in unconscious self-mutilation through abnormal autosuggestibility.
