Protection of the Church

Protection of the Church a sort of right of asylum within or near sacred precincts, which prevailed in 1064 in England from Advent to the octave of Epiphany, from Septuagesima to the octave of Easter, from Ascension to the octave of Pentecost, in Ember weeks, throughout Sunday, on the vigils and feasts of apostles and saints which were bidden on the previous Sunday, All-Saints', the dedication-day of a church, in going to synods, chapters, on pilgrimage, to a consecration, or to church.
