Quadrivial Quandary:  Logophiles, Rejoice!  Each day we give you four unusual words.  Can you fit them all in one illustrative sentence?
Quandary Resolution 443
anomie, ascribe, depredate, numinous
The gods have given the nod to the old library (with its remarkable, numinous reading room), far removed in spirit at least from the anomie of its environs and, to date, immune from the depredations of the locals, which I ascribe simply to their superstitious fear of the carvings on the outer walls.
