  1. Welp it’s taken 40+ years but I think I finally found the inspiration for the vorpal rabbit in Monty Python and the Holy Grail…wonder if that’s the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch??

      • I don’t think it was the bible so much as the truly weird cultural stuff of Medieval illustration and allegory in these texts.

        Most of these people were not far away from pagans, and those beliefs saturated medieval culture, so I’ll wager a lot of it is Catholic appropriation of pagan symbology, of the kind you see even today in Central and South American festivals…most of which are pretty much Mesoamerican pagan rituals run through a Catholic chop shop, with the serial numbers filed off and a little fresh paint on them, and calling the gods, devils.

        Or those medieval monks were permanently stuck at 4:20 8:-)
