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

Flagellation, an ancient practice associated with extreme ascetic forms, is employed by some religious people in order to purify themselves spiritually and mortify their own flesh. This form of intense bodily discipline is considered a way of doing penance to atone for sins. Some believers believe that flagellation strengthens their bond with God and brings them closer to the suffering of Christ. However, it is important to note that this practice is not widespread in all religious traditions and is often controversial due to its marginal nature.
