  1. Virge

    A virge, from the Latin virga, is a type of rod, made of wood. Originally it was one or more branches used as an instrument for corporal punishment, or as a riding crop. It is presently best known as the ceremonial staff of the Anglican and Episcopalian lay church officers known as verger, who originally used it as a 'weapon' to make way for the ecclesiastical procession, and occasionally to chastise unruly choristers.
