Nice work, interesting about what a Virge is and is used for.

Everything after, “just in case,” was lost on my heathen mind but your thrashing stick is pretty cool. :)

Thanks, guys! The office of verger has a history dating to the twelfth century. Vergers have been responsible for the order and upkeep the church buildings, its furnishings, and sacred relics, conduct of the laity, preparations for liturgy, and discreetly shepherding the clergy through the details of the service. There is also evidence that they have had grave-digging responsibilities.

Rick, it’s interesting that you referred to the virge as a thrashing stick … because, a verger can also be seen as a bodyguard, of sorts, for the clergy. Especially when processing through a crowd. The virge is reminiscent of a flail.

I almost forgot … when not being carried my virge rests quietly in its own little stand!
