"The following study is the result of lectures delivered at a session of the Federation of Catholic Students' Unions held in Innsbruk in 1925. Its purpose is an analysis of the nature of sexual purity and virginity, not a study of sex education nor the formulation of practical rules of conduct, not even a defence of purity and virginity against their detractors. For this reason the question of which I shall primarily treat is not how much is lawful in this field, but what constitutes the complete virtue of purity and wherein the ideal of purity consists." - Preface.
