Seal, Consecration of an Episcopal

Seal, Consecration Of An Episcopal It was customary in many parts of the Church during the Middle Ages to consecrate the seal of a newly made bishop with his vestments and other episcopal insignia. The form of consecration was simple, the seal being blessed with holy-water. At the death of the bishop, his seal or seals (for he had usually more than one) were carefully destroyed.
