Weekend 532.0

(1) This is from The Cathedrals of England by Alec Clifton-Taylor:

Armature: A metal framework, in the Middle Ages always of iron, introduced into a large untraceried window to support the stained glass. Armatures were sometimes wrought into a elaborate decorative patterns.

Chantry Chapel: A small chapel within a cathedral or other church, endowed for the saying of Masses for the soul of the donor.

(2) The Morning Briefing: New York Times Takes a Swing at God, Misses Wildly (PJ Media)

“Secular heathens are duty-bound to destroy America, we know this. When we tell people this it might seem like a bit of a fuss because we’re too church-y over on this side, but we do have a point.”

KING OF NORTHUMBRIA AND MARTYR, SLAIN IN BATTLE BY THE HEATHEN WHOM HE SO LONG DEFIED.
