Is it, or was it necessary for a church to have a bell in order for it to be
consecrated? I have come across a number of instances recently where a bell
has been provided "on loan" for the consecration and then redeemed following
an order for a permanent bell or set of bells. I believe canon law (in the
days of Palestrina) used to stipulate this - is this so and does it still? A
punnet of strawberries and a Kill Bill DVD for anyone who can answer!
