Interesting--I've never heard of Fast Day.

I think that's right on the mark, Genevieve. It was as much about steeling resolve and forging a shared sense of purpose as of religious devotion. An interesting blend of the sacred and the secular.

This was an interesting post. Besides the obvious religious theme, I suppose the assumption behind the Fast Day was that once people had meditated seriously on something, they'd achieve unity of mind.
