Knife, Eucharistic

[image]

was a knife with which to prepare the sacramental bread and for dividing the eulogiae, anciently found in most sacristies. The holy loaf, out of which they were cut, was ordered to be provided by the parish by the Salisbury constitution of 1254. King Athelstan left his knife on the altar of Beverley; as a pledge for his redemption of a vow of benefaction.
