T 1J - A
Easter, tho fcsllyal of tha rosureretion of
Jesus Christ, dorlvcs probably Its Toulonlc
name, from tho goddess Ostara, In
Anglo Saxon, Easter, which tho Saxons
of old woro wont to, colobrate about tho
sameseason at which tho christian festival
of Kaster occurs. In tho ancient church,
tho celebration of Easter lasted ovor eight
days. After the 11th cantu-y, it was
limited tothrae, and In lattor times to two
days. It was formerly the favorite timo
for performing the rlto of baptism. Tho
courts of justlco wero closed, and alms
dispensed to the poor and needy, which led
to muchjdlsorler. Slaves also received
their freedom at that season, and as the
austerities of Leai ware over, tho people
gave themselves up .to enjoyment; honce
tbe day was called tho
SUNDAY Or JOY.
The Tirooer time for tha celebration of
Xastac has ococasioaed no little contra
versy. In tha second, century a dlsput
arose between ta eastorn and western
churches. Tho great mass of tho eastern
churches celebrated Easter on the day of
ba Jewish month or moon, conceding it
to be equivalent to tho
Tbe western churches celabrtttod it on tbo
Sunday after tbe 14 to day, holding that' it
was the commemoration of the rciurroc-
COL'NCIL or NICE
deoldod In favor of tho weUern usage,
branding the eastern usage with tho naino
of tho 'nuarlitdeciraau" hereby. This
.however only nettled the point that Hat

of the month or moon, but onjja
