Sign of Assent

Brother Henry F. Berry M. A., of the Public Record Office in Ireland, discovered among the papers of Archbishop Ussher preserved in the Library of Trinity College, Dublin a complete Code of manual signs used by the Vietorine Canons at Saint Thomas's Abbey, Dublin. The Latin code contains the following item:

Pro signo annuendi, leva manum moderate et move non inversam sed ut exterior superfieies sit sursum. For the sign of assent, lift the hand moderately, and move it, not inverted but so that the outer surface may be upwards.

The above code is published in the Journal of the Royal Society of At uaries of Ireland, part il. volume ii, 1892.

Great job and thanks for such a high quality product.”  Les,
