Creeping out the Dominicans


The Shrine of the Holy Whapping has a funny little piece explaining this engraving. (Can't find a direct link to the story, but if you scroll down their page, you'll find it.) It honours a Renaissance professor at the Roman College, who was always playing practical jokes. He used to fly a dragon-shaped kite emblazoned with the words FUGITE DIVINA IRA to rattle the Dominicans down the street.
