Among the Greeks and the nations of the west of Asia,
on Septuagesima Sunday they published the rules and
regulations of Lent. From the following Monday they
use no meat, but eat what they call " White Meats," as
eggs, cheese, butter and things of that kind, while on the
Monday before Ash Wednesday, their Lent begins with
all its rigors. From that time they eat neither meat,
eggs, cheese or even fish. The only things allowed are
bread, fruits, honey, and for those who live near the sea,
shell-fish. Wine, for a long time forbidden, is drank no
more among them.
