A ‘Hagioscope’ in St Mary’s

All those visiting our church are welcome to make use of our written guide: “A Devotional Tour Of St Mary Magdalene Taunton” which gives a useful descriptive tour around the church and highlights places of interest. We were intrigued by the use of the word “Hagioscope”. This is not a word which we come across every day! An internet search eventually gave us a meaning in a dictionary of English dialect: “ a squint hole or peephole”. So there it is – a hagioscope within our church located at the east end of the outer North Aisle enabling a peep at the High Altar.
