520    Is there a resemblance between the contemporary anorexic 
       teenager in her single-minded pursuit of thinness, and an 
       ascetic medieval saint examining her every desire? Both 
       contemporary anorexics and 'holy anorexics' seek autonomy 
       in culturally defined ideal states: energetic slenderness 
       today, spiritual purity in the Middle Ages.
