I have such a strong love of old timey werewolf stories. They often have a lot of shame associated with them, which is why they also involve religion. Even The Wolfman had a scene where Talbot can't bring himself to enter a church because he feels too dirty.
My fascination with monks mainly comes from the drama of men who are expected to live a pious life but usually have a really hard time doing so, so they lend themselves very well to this sort of werewolf story.

A bunch of men and boys spending all their lives in the relative/occasional privacy of a monastery....what could possibly happen?
