Chas"ti*ty (?), n. [F. chastet'e, fr. L. castitas, fr. castus. See Chaste.]
The state of being chaste; purity of body; freedom from unlawful sexual intercourse.
She . . . hath preserved her spotless chastity.
So dear to heaven is saintly chastity,
That, when a soul is found sicerely so
A thousand liveried angels lackey her.
The unmarried life; celibacy.
