Amen Corner

London, the end of Paternoster Row, where the monks finished their Pater Noster, on Corpus Christi Day, as they went in procession to St. Paul's Cathedral. They began in Paternoster Row with the Lord's prayer in Latin, which was continued to the end of the street; then said Amen, at the corner or bottom of the Row; then turning down Ave-Maria Lane, commenced chanting the “Hail, Mary!” then crossing Ludgate, they chanted the Credo. Amen Lane no longer exists.
