Ignatius and his Monkeys



News-Commentary, Drollery


Religious Authority, Animal Behaviour, Human Development, Zoological Gardens

    Denies reports that Joseph L Lyne ('Brother Ignatius') and his associates have moved from their Norwich monastery to the Zoological Society Gardens. Presents an extract from a news report describing the aggressive attempt by some monks to excommunicate Ignatius—'monkey's tricks' which indicate that the monks are no different from simians. Reports that the 'simious brotherhood' remain at 'their old monkeyry at Norwich' except those members who have deserted it. Compares these renegades to monkeys and to 'vermin' in the Church of England
