BELLS IN ORUROHIJS.
First Used By Paulinus, Bishop o
Nola, About 400.
Church bells are of ancient origii
The ancients had bells for both sac
red and profane purposes. Strab
says that market tirne was' announc
ed by-their sound and Pliny that th
tomb of an ancient king of Tuscan;
was hung round with bells. The hou
of bathing was made known i:
ancient Rome by the sound of a bell

elly considered the first person wh
introduced bells into ecelesiastice
service ab6ut the year 400. Histoi
inns say that in 610 the bishop o
Orleans, being at Seno, then in ;
state of siege, frightened away th
besieging army by ringing St. Steph
c's church bells, which is a clen
proof that they were not at that tim
generally known in FrAnce. Th
first large bells are mentioned b;
Bede in the year 680. Before tha
period the early British Christian
made use of wooden rattles to cal
the congregation of the faithful tc
gether. Hand bells probably firs
appeared at religious processions; ani
were afterward used by the secular.
The small bells wce,re not, always hel

suspended upon a stake and struel
Tie arrival of'kings and great per
sonages was anciently greeted b)
ringing the church bells. Inguiolim
abbot of Croyland, who died abon
1109, speakes of them as being wvel
known in his time and says that "th,
first abbot of Coryland gave si:
bells to that monastery-that is I
say, two great ones, which lie name<

and Bettrine; two small ones, denom

ing brass or silver rings at the end
for the hand. They were ancientl;
rung yy the priests themselves, aftei

by those incapable of other dutiec
as persons who were blind.
The doctrine of tile Church o
Rome concerning bells is that the

living and the dead; second, tha
they produce devotion in the heart
of tite faithful. The dislike of evi
spirits to bells is well expressed b
Wynken de Worde in the "Golde

anciently rung for two good purpoF

good Christian people for a sol jus
