Vespers was an evening prayer service in various Christian denominations, including the Catholic Church.[1]

After being bitten by a Jarvey he described as simply a "talking Ferret", Brother Benedict, a Franciscan monk from Worcestershire during the Middle Ages, was excused from the Vespers, as his nose was still swollen and bloody.[2]
