Semi Jejunia

Semi jejunia (half fasts), a name given to the weekly fasts in the ancient Christian Church, because the services of the Church continued on these days no longer than till three o'clock in the afternoon, whereas a perfect and complete fast was never reckoned to end before evening. These half fasts were also called Stations (q.v.).
