A Love of Walls

“One thing I admonish you, beware of Antichrist. It is wrong that a love of walls has seized you; wrong that you venerate the Church of God in roofs and buildings; wrong that beneath these you introduce the Name of peace. Is there any doubt that Antichrist will have his seat in them? To my mind, mountains, woods, lakes, prisons and chasms are safer. For either abiding in them or cast into them, the prophets prophesied.”

Hilary of Poitiers, quoted by Calvin in his Institutes, p.25
