... Entrance (ἡ μεγάλη εἴσοδος), ritual procession that opens the second half of the liturgy , the Eucharist , just as the Little Entrance opens the earlier part, the Liturgy of the Word. The deacon carries the paten with the eucharistic bread and the priest the chalice with the wine from the prothesis chamber (see Pastophoria ) into the nave of the church, then through the templon to the altar. The entrance of the bread and wine symbolizes Christ's coming in the sacrament of his body and blood. The Great Entrance is a ritualization of the primitive...

...in 1814 [ see *architecture, 28 ]. The oldest public picture gallery in Britain thus bears the stamp of its patrons in an unusually corporeal manner. Admission to the Dulwich Gallery was carefully regulated to exclude the local (primarily artisan) population of the area. No entrance fee was charged, but the necessary admission tickets could only be had from a number of specific print and booksellers in London. School groups and children under 14 were debarred, and the catalogue formally requested that visitors refrain from tipping the servants. The paucity...

...designs by several important artists, notably Fragonard and Hubert Robert. The entire undertaking was really the brainchild and the obsession of Jean-Claude Richard , abbé de Saint-Non. He visited Italy for the first time in 1759 and the country, and especially Rome, entranced him. He then devoted his life and most of his wealth to ensuring that this large-scale project was completed to his satisfaction. It is far more than a mere topographical record, since the plates are full of drama, including sections devoted to volcanoes—the plate by Robert of...

...perfect sign of what Keats's detractors saw as his Cockney pretentiousness. Remember that the sonnet's explicit theme is the discovery of culture, and that the fanciful style signifies how the sonnet appears to execute its own entrance to the ‘realms of gold’ it so desires. In thus enacting its own desires, however, it simultaneously exposes the spectacular frailty and even triviality of the realms of gold. As in certain medieval paintings, a small leering monkey has found its way into the work—indeed, has arranged to appear at its rhetorical climax. The poem...

...Martini's print illustrates, the Academy provided a prime exhibition space for established and younger artists in the nation. Each year, during the spring and summer months, hundreds of modern British paintings, *sculptures , and drawings were put on display at Somerset House. Entrance to this exhibition cost a shilling, and attendance quickly became an annual ritual of polite urban society. The Exhibition of the Royal Academy, 1787 , shows a typically fashionable throng of visitors picking their way through the Academy's main exhibition room. The paintings,...

...though 19th‐ and 20th‐century enlargements may have obscured this arrangement. This was because well into the 18th century (and sometimes beyond) the north side was regarded as the Devil's side, where excommunicants, the unbaptized, suicides, etc. were buried. The main public entrance to a church was normally on the south side of the nave, except where considerations of local topography and convenience dictated otherwise.

...fashionable world no longer felt the need to associate with the lower orders in the public theatres, a move that was greeted with dismay by managers and theatre owners, who sought to woo back this influential section of the audience by offering them the exclusivity of separate entrances and private boxes. Such measures were to no avail, however, as the bon ton continued to desert the increasingly unfashionable Covent Garden and Drury Lane. A similar development is observable in the provinces: by 1835 the Colchester Gazette could remark that ‘few...

..., Concise Dictionary of American Grammar and Usage 96 ( 1955 ). Foot of the bed , of course, is a set phrase , so the example is not a fair one. As a general principle, though, whenever it's not a violation of idiom, the possessive in 's is preferable <the hotel's front entrance> <the earth's surface> . But such possessives can be overdone. For example, avoid using the possessive form of a year—e.g.: “Mr. Rogers, 41, took the show by storm in 1993 , winning 28 blue ribbons and the Show Sweepstakes with a total of 1,120 points (which really upped the...
