medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture
That's great.  In another related document it does indeed look like cornu but I didn't think it could be!

Many thanks

Hi Laura,

 

“cornu epistolae”, the right side of the alter, from the point of view of the congregation. Cornu, -us can made “side”. The other side would be the “cornu euangeliae”.

medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

I'm struggling to transcribe a document which refers to the epistle side of a church screen (at least I think that's what it's talking about) but I can't read the term for side.  It looks like 'cirnu/cornu epistole'.  A dictionary search leads to 'citra' as a possibility, but it really doesn't look like that.  What would be the usual term for 'epistle side'?

 

Many thanks,

 

Laura
