AGAINST PINTEREST CENSORSHIP I repin this. Please, repin the more you can! In the picture: Skoptsy , an archaic word meaning "castrated one" in the Russian language. The main feature of the sect was castration. They believed that after the expulsion from the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve had the halves of the forbidden fruit grafted onto their bodies forming testicles and breasts. Thus, the removal of these sexual organs restored the Skoptsy to the pristine state before the Original Sin.
