Where religion and my dissertation collide
"Four stately lime trees ceremoniously planted near a popular Roman Catholic shrine in 1983 for a visit to Austria by the late Pope John Paul II are being uprooted to make way for a large grandstand for next month's pilgrimage by Pope Benedict XVI." -Chicago Tribune, 14 August 2007
(Lime is the common name for various species of European Tilia).
