In the first ages, during the night before every feast, a vigil was kept. In the evening the faithful assembled in the place or church where the feast was to be celebrated and prepared themselves by prayers, readings from Holy Writ (now the Offices of Vespers and Matins), and sometimes also by hearing a sermon.
This is the icon/coding/&c. workshop of terra/latkje. The layout is a self-made edit of Five AM by winterfish. The artwork is A Dorcas meeting in the 6th century (1873-77), by Edwin Long. Fonts featured include Fira Sans, Playfair Display, and Charter.
The name “vigils” is a joke about staying up too late.
So, I decided to let one of my old domains lapse in order to save money. The problem: this domain happened to host a lot of the images for my old DW layouts. As a result, a bunch of the images broke, since the URLS now redirect to nothing. The good news is this is a simple thing to fix.
I've updated all the entries on this journal, so you can just copy & paste the "new" versions of your layout.
Or you can fix the images manually by updating the URLs like so, by finding the spoonybard.org domain:
And replacing it with spoony.valiantknife.org, like so:
Sorry for the inconvenience!
Please credit to terra or vigils. Feel free to modify/redistribute however you like! You an see some tweaks I've made to the CSS shell (and a header image without the text) here. This layout uses a few icons by Paul Armstrong.
