Today's Word of the Day is a term that you'll see when reading books about life in 17th Century British life.  I heard it while listening to "The Scarlett Letter" by Nathaniel Hawthorne.

Word of the Day

"Beadle" - noun [$10]
Beadle means 1. (British) a ceremonial officer of a church, college, etc.; 2. (Scottish) a church officer attending on a minister; 3. (British History) a minor parish official dealing with petty offenses etc.
Sentence:  The Beadle led Hester Prinn from jail wearing the Scarlett Letter to bear three hours of public opprobrium for her "sin".
