Quandary Resolution 697
hagiography, usher, yellow-dog, verboten
The current century ushered in a form of hagiography positively verboten in earlier times-a kind of yellow-dog snooping about into the private practices of well established saints such as flagellation, gluttony, and the occasional debauch- which left the faithful faced with agonizing decisions as to where to most effectively aim their supplications.
