Armarium is a Latin word for ambry, which is defined as “a recess in a church wall for holding sacramental vessels, vestments, or books.”
The word thug comes to English from India and the Hindi word thag. During the nineteenth century, British colonizers encountered a gang called the thugs, who were said to have strangled thousands of people. Captain William Sleeman, tasked with expunging the thugs, went after nearly 4,000 of them and, after a slew of convictions and executions, declared the problem resolved. Recently, some historians have questioned the narrative of the thugs, believing that the colonists greatly exaggerated the whole thing.
