Stovington Church

The curious religious politics of the Duchy is illustrated by the small community of Stovington Church. Despite the Duke's official censure of the Old observances in favor of the new, every equinox, the people of Stovington gather before the Church and process to the ancient stone circle in the woods, then return for evening worship at the Church. The clergy politely arrange to be absent during the procession, pretending with all solemnity that it does not exist. In this way, the spirits of both traditions are satisfied.
