Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 2117
Gongorism, contiguous, welter, Nth
The fantastical new church, the quintessence of bad taste by any classical standard, was unfortunately contiguous to the ruins of a spare, elegant early medieval abbey, the closeness of the two structures exaggerating the church's architectural Gongorism to the nth degree and forcing the visitor to see it as a welter of obscurity, extravagance, over-refinement, and a complete violation of the accepted principles of architecture and even logic.
