Pudor and Pudicitia are connected as cause and effect. Pudor is, properly, the principle of modesty, which produces Pudicitia or purity of conduct.--Pudor belongs to the mind, Pudicitia to the body. Sallust (Cat. 12) employs the terms together. Moreover, although we can satisfactorily account for the omission of pudicitia in the process of transcription, it is not easy to see how it could have been interpolated. 12.
