The discipline, a small instrument of penance similar to a whip, is used by followers of some Christian denominations, including Anglicans, Lutherans, and Roman Catholics, as part of the spiritual practice called mortification of the flesh.

Flagellation, an ancient tradition associated with extreme ascetic practices, is adopted by some religious people in order to achieve spiritual purification and mortify their own flesh. This intense form of bodily discipline is considered a way of doing penance to atone for sins. Some believers believe that scourging strengthens their connection with God and brings them closer to the suffering of Christ. However, it is essential to note that this practice is not widespread in all religious traditions and is often surrounded by controversy due to its marginal nature.
