Text from "Priest-hole"[edit]

The following is the original text from "Priest-hole" which is now a redirect to this page.

"A Priest-hole, in the context of 16/17th century English history, is secret chamber in a building in which Roman Catholic clergy would hide when the home they were staying in was about to be searched by the English authorities who were anxious to suppress Roman Catholicism and support the Church of England. They were sometimes built, as in East Riddlesden Hall, as an offshoot from a chimney or behind panelling, for example in Ripley Castle, Ripley, North Yorkshire."

Where is that big block quote from? It should definitely be sourced. Makemi 23:28, 31 January 2006 (UTC)

It looks like the block quote is a translation of Vita et Mors (full title Societas Jesu usque ad sanguinis et vitæ profusionem... Societas Jesu usque ad sanguinis et vitæ profusionem militans ... Sive vita et mors eorum qui ex Societate Jesu in causa fidei, ... violenta morte toto orbe sublati sunt) by Matthias Tanner, perhaps as quoted in Secret chambers and hiding-places : the historic, romantic & legendary stories & traditions about hiding-holes, secret chambers & c. by Allan Fea. However, Recusant history, Volume 28 seems to say the statement is in error: http://books.google.com/books?id=YIEjAQAAIAAJ&q=%22With+incomparable+skill+Owen+knew+how+to+conduct+priests%22&dq=%22With+incomparable+skill+Owen+knew+how+to+conduct+priests%22&hl=en&sa=X&ei=oyZ_T_quGorViALbmbDIAw&ved=0CDIQ6AEwAA --Larrybob (talk) 17:42, 6 April 2012 (UTC)

Terminology[edit]

A minor correction may be in order for the caption of this page's illustration, which reads, "The concealed entrance to a priest hole in Partingdale House, Middlesex (in the right column)". The structure termed 'the right column' may be better referred to as 'the right pilaster'. Evangelon 02:56, 6 August 2007 (UTC)

Video of Priest Hole[edit]

Have added a link to a video of a priest hole in Naworth Castle,Cumbria.

Hope that this is acceptable and adds to the value of the article Collieman (talk) 17:38, 20 March 2009 (UTC)
