Malapropism Corrected[edit]

I noticed an English malapropism, indicated in italics in this extract:

"The cemetery is similar to many other such British cemeteries which came into existence after the Reformation when governments and religious authorities excluded those not of their proscribed faith from burial in their consecrated ground."

The word should read PRESCRIBED, in this context the religion prescribed by the state for its subjects; PROSCRIBED means the religion is banned in that country (and would have been the literal case during the era of the Inquisition, abolished before the cemetery was founded).Cloptonson (talk) 21:11, 12 May 2014 (UTC)
