''Lustratio'' was an Ancient Roman term for the Religious practice of purification of Women just prior to the birth of a child. This ritual purification required the dual sacrifices of a Pig and Bull. Bathed in the mixed blood, if the child was born Male he would be given His Bulla Talismen. If a Girl, The Lunula. In some instances, whole Cities were purified for protection against ''Evil Spirits''.
