[Ab] Resumo:This paper aims to investigate the stress management skills of Christian Orthodox monks and nuns, as measured by Antonovsky's scale sense of coherence (SOC). A case-control study was designed to test the hypotheses whether monks and nuns have higher SOC than secular people. The study population consisted of 193 individuals, 96 monks and nuns (study group) and 97 secular men and women (control group). SOC score was higher in monks and nuns as compared to the secular population (p = 0.002), men as compared to women (p = 0.012) and persons of older age (p = 0.004) as compared to younger individuals.

[Ti] Título:An Aspect of the History of Medicine in Ancient Korea as Examined through Silla Buddhist Monks'Annotations on the "Chapter on Eliminating Disease"in the Sutra of Golden Light (Suvarnabhasa-sutra).

[Ab] Resumo:Nearly nothing is known of medicine in ancient Korea due to insufficient materials. With several extant prescriptions and esoteric methods of treating diseases alone, it is impossible to gauge in depth the management of medicine during this period. If one exception were to be cited, that would be the fact that the annotations for understanding the contents on Indian medicine in the "Chapter on Eliminating Disease" in the Sutra of Golden Light, a Buddhist sutra originating from India, reflected the medical knowledge of Buddhist monks from Silla (57 BC-935 AD) who were active immediately after the nation's unification of the two other kingdoms on the Korean Peninsula (668 AD) such as Wonhyo (617-686 AD), Gyeongheung (620?-700? AD), and Seungjang (684-? AD). Along with those by other monks, these annotations are collected in the Mysterious Pivot of the Sutra of Golden Light, which was compiled by Gangyo(835-871 AD), a Japanese monk from the Heian era (794-1185 AD). Representative versions of the "Chapter on Eliminating Disease" in the Sutra of Golden Light include: a classical Chinese translation by the Indian monk Dharmaksema (385-433 AD); the eight-volume edition by Chinese monk Baogui, which differs little from the preceding work in terms of the contents of the "Chapter on Eliminating Disease"; and the ten-volume edition by Yijing (635-713 AD), who had full-fledged knowledge of Indian medicine. When the contents of the annotations thus collected are examined, it seems that Wonhyo had not been aware of the existence of the ten-volume edition, and Gyeongheung and Seungjang most certainly used the ten-volume edition in their annotations as well. Especially noteworthy are Wonhyo's annotations on the Indian medical knowledge found in the "Chapter on Eliminating Disease" in the Sutra of Golden Light. Here, he made a bold attempt to link and understand consistently even discussions on Indian and Buddhist medicine on the basis of the traditional East Asian medical theory centering on the yin-yang and five phases (wuxing). In accordance with East Asia's theory of the seasonal five phases, Wonhyo sought to explain aspects of Indian medicine, e.g., changes in the four great elements (catvari maha-bhutani) of earth, water, fire, and wind according to seasonal factors and their effect on the internal organs; patterns of diseases such as wind (vata)-induced disease, bile (pitta)-induced disease, phlegm (slesman)-induced disease, and a combination (samnipata) of these three types of diseases; pathogenesis due to the indigestion of food, as pathological mechanisms centering on the theory of the mutual overcoming (xiangke) of the five phases including the five viscera (wuzang), five flavors (wuwei), and five colors (wuse). They existed in the text contents on Indian medicine, which could not be explicated well with the existing medical knowledge based on the theory of the five phases. Consequently, he boldly modified the theory of the five phases in his own way for such passages, thus attempting a reconciliation, or harmonization of disputes (hwajaeng), of the two medical systems. Such an attempt was even bolder than those by earlier annotators, and Wonhyo's annotations came to be accepted by later annotators as one persuasive explanation as well. In the case of Gyeongheung and Seungjang, who obtained and examined the ten-volume edition, a new classical Chinese translation produced following Wonhyo's death, annotated the "Chapter on Eliminating Disease" based on their outstanding proficiency in Sanskrit and knowledge of new Indian and Buddhist medicine. This fact signifies that knowledge of the eight arts of Ayurvedic medicine in India was introduced into Silla around the early 8th century. The medical knowledge of Wonhyo, Gyeongheung, and Seungjang demonstrates that intellectual circles in contemporary Silla were arenas in which not only traditional East Asian medicine as represented by works such as the Inner Canon of the Yellow Emperor (Huangdi Neijing) but also Indian medicine of Buddhism coexisted in almost real time.

[Ti] Título:Salutogenesis and the Monks of Athos, Greece: A Spiritual Health Promotion?
[So] Source:Adv Mind Body Med;30(2):11-8, 2016.

[Ab] Resumo:Context • A cohort of studies on secular populations has indicated the role that religiosity plays in psychological well-being. An increase in the participation in religious activity has been shown to have a positive correlation with beneficial mental health outcomes. Internationally, few studies exist regarding the sense of coherence (SOC) of monks. SOC is a health asset related to stress management skills. Objective • The study aimed to assess the SOC of monks who lived at Mount Athos, Greece, and to determine its correlation with demographic characteristics. Design • The type of design was a descriptive cross-sectional study using convenience sampling. Setting • The study took place at Mount Athos in 2 monasteries and 1 skete, which is an organized community that consists of several monastic huts that belong to a communal monastery. Participants • Of the 215 monks living in the 2 monasteries and the skete, 166 monks participated. Outcome Measures • Data were collected from May-August 2012, using a structured questionnaire that was divided into 2 parts: (1) a demographic section (8 items) and (2) the Sense of Coherence (SOC-13) survey. Results • The mean age of participants was 45.5 y ± 13.0. Of the 166 monks participating, 139 (83.7 %) lived in communal monasteries, and the mean time of participation in monasticism was 18.4 ± 12.1 y. The mean value on the SOC-13 scale was 65.7 ± 6.5. According to the multiple regression analyses, the number of years in monasticism presented a positive correlation with the SOC score (ß = 0.12, SE = 0.04, P = .003), whereas the number of daily hours of sleep presented a negative correlation with the SOC score (ß = -1.34, SE = 0.50, P = .008). Conclusions • The monks seemed to have a strong SOC and, therefore, adequate stress management skills. Religious spirituality may help individuals in coping with daily life. More evidence-based studies need to be implemented to highlight the correlation between Orthodox Christian monasticism and SOC.

[Ab] Resumo:The Franciscan friar Agostino Gemelli has been the subject of much research and debate. This is due to his important political profile and, above all, to the role he played in mediating between the Catholic world and fascism in Italy during the inter-war period. Gemelli was also a central figure in Italian psychology, especially during the 1930s and 1940s. This article is structured to focus in particular on the way that his connections with political and ecclesiastic powers allowed him to become increasingly significant within Italian psychology. Using the example of Gemelli's relationship with psychoanalysis, this study highlights the tension between his relatively open-minded stance and his links to authoritarian, dogmatic ideologies and institutions.

[Ab] Resumo:PURPOSE: To explore the oral health beliefs and behaviour among Tibetan immigrants of Bylakkupe village. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A stratified random sampling technique involving 366 Tibetan monks in Bylakkupe monasteries was used in this study. The oral health beliefs were measured using a pre-tested questionnaire. RESULTS: The results showed that seriousness was higher compared to other domains in the health belief model. Further, as the duration of the stay increased, the perceived importance was also higher among the population studied. CONCLUSION: The results show that in general, although the seriousness of oral health was high among the participants, the perceived benefit of dental treatment was relatively low.

[Ab] Resumo:OBJECTIVE: To explore the prevalence, awareness, treatment and control rates of hypertension among Tibetan monks in Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Gansu Province, and to analyze risk factors of hypertension in this population. METHODS: A total of 984 (aged 18 and over) Tibetan monks in Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Gansu Province were included with cluster sampling method from March to June, 2014. General information was obtained by questionnaire and blood pressure was measured. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was applied to analyze the risk factors of blood pressure. RESULTS: Prevalence of hypertension in this population was 19.3% (190/984), and standardized prevalence rate was 21.7%. The prevalence of hypertension were 16.3% (82/502), 21.0% (60/286) and 24.5% (48/196), and standardized prevalence rate was 17.8%, 22.1% and 26.6% among Tibetan monks aged 18-39, 40-59 and ≥60 years, respectively. Rates of awareness, treatment and control of hypertension in Tibetan monks were 9.5% (18/984), 4.2% (8/984)and 1.6% (3/984), respectively. Multivariate logistic regression analysis showed that age, body mass index and family history of hypertension were independent risk factors of hypertension in this population (P<0.01 or 0.05). CONCLUSIONS: Prevalence, awareness, treatment and control rates of hypertension among Tibetan monks in Gannan Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Gansu Province are relatively low. Age, body mass index and family history of hypertension are risk factors of hypertension in this population.

[Ab] Resumo:OBJECTIVE: To investigate the prevalence and risk factors of hyperuricemia (HUA) in Tibetan monks of Sichuan province. METHODS: 755 adult Tibetan monks (more than 18 years old) in Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture of Sichuan Province were included in this study for health examination. Residents of Kangding City who received health examination were selected as controls. We measured the height, body mass, waist circumference, hip circumference, blood pressure and detected liver and renal function, serum lipid and blood routine exam. Then HUA prevalence in different genders and ages, and risk factors of HUA were analyzed. RESULTS: The serum uric acid (SUA) level of Tibetan monks was (318. 03±107. 70) µmol/L with the total HUA prevalence of 21. 46%. The prevalence of male was higher than that of female (25. 44% vs. 19. 02%, P<0. 05). The overall HUA prevalence of residents in Kangding City was 30. 70%, which was higher than that of the monks (P<0. 01). Prevalence of HUA in male monks was lower than the entire male population (25. 44% vs. 41. 65%) and male Tibetan ones (25. 44% vs. 32. 23%) in Kangding city. Among female population, however, we found that the HUA prevalence of monk (19. 02%) was higher than that of overall female population (14. 07%) and Tibetan residents (14. 72%) in Kangding (P<0. 05). Peak prevalence of HUA in Tibetan monks was between 30 and 40 years old. Gender, waist circumference, waist-to-height ratio (WHtR), fasting plasma glucose (FPG), serum creatinine (SCr), hemoglobin (Hb) levels and the consumption of meat were all independent risk factors for the occurrence of HUA in Tibetan monks according to Logistic regression analysis. CONCLUSION: The prevalence of HUA in male Tibetan monks is lower than that of local urban Tibetan population, but the result in female monks is opposite. Gender, waist circumference, WHtR, FPG, SCr, Hb levels and the consumption of meat were all independent risk factors for HUA.

[Ti] Título:Monks on the move: Evaluating pilgrimage to Byzantine St. Stephen's monastery using strontium isotopes.

[Ab] Resumo:OBJECTIVES: Written and archaeological evidence indicates that migration, in the form of pilgrimage to Byzantine Palestine, was a major social phenomenon between the 5th and 7th centuries CE. Monasteries saw record growth at this time as pilgrims chose to stay in the region and take up religious life. A major influx of people to the region, with a corresponding growth in monastic vocations that led travelers to stay in the area, is not in question; however, the distant origins of pilgrims reflected in surviving texts may be an artifact of preservation, biased towards an elite minority. The Byzantine monastery of St. Stephen's provides an opportunity to study this question from a bioarchaeological perspective, given the excellent preservation of the human skeletal assemblage, a wealth of written works about the community as well as daily life in Byzantine Palestine, and a rich archaeological record for the site and region. MATERIALS AND METHODS: An analysis of radiogenic strontium isotope values from the third molars of 22 individuals recovered from the St. Stephen's crypt complex was conducted to test whether those interred at the monastery were of local origin. RESULTS: Of those examined ( x¯= 0.7084 ± 0.0007, 1σ), 8 out of 22 (36%) exhibited (87) Sr/(86) Sr ratios that fell outside of local ranges. DISCUSSION: These results confirmed the sizeable presence of nonlocals at St. Stephen's Monastery. While most of these migrants likely traveled to Jerusalem from different areas of the Levant as pilgrims, others may have hailed from further afield, including Europe.

[Ab] Resumo:Tibetan monks are a special group in life style and diet customs. We have little information of hypertension about them. Therefore, the objective of this study was to investigate the information on the prevalence, awareness, treatment and control of hypertension in these populations. A cross-sectional study of hypertension was carried out in 984 monks and 1042 Tibetan residents' controls in the same area. All the subjects were selected for interview, and physical examination involved blood pressure (BP) measurement. The overall prevalence of hypertension in monks was significantly lower than those in local residents (19.3% versus 34.1%; p < 0.01). The rates of awareness, treatment and control in monks were also lower than those in local residents (9.5% versus 16.9%, 4.2% versus 13.2% and 1.6% versus 4.5%; p < 0.01 for each). These findings indicated that a low prevalence of hypertension among monks aged 18 years and over in Gannan Tibetan autonomous district of Gansu province in China. We concluded that the relatively healthy diet and ways of life in monks were the major contributing factors to the lower prevalence of hypertension. However, the awareness, treatment and control rates of hypertension were also low. The possible reasons were most likely due to the difficult access to quality medical care and poor health education.
