In Octavis Pentecostes

Restoring the Octave of Pentecost involves doing something about Trinity Sunday. But in England, before 1260, "the Feast of the Trinity was kept by some ... on the Sunday next before Advent." They weren't alone.

  1. It appears that Trinity Sunday was rather variable back in the day. The Eastern Orthodox (at least the Chalcedonian Byzantines) celebrate it on Pentecost. the day after is called the 'day of the Spirit). And the next Sunday is All saints day to us. Go figure!
