At the time you might've sworn to yourself that the information you were learning was irrelevant. "When the hell am I ever going to need to know what an almoner does?" you may have scoffed to yourself as a 15 year old, on the cusp of taking your Junior Cert, "This is all pointless".
Well, that may have been the case up until now. However, now you're taking a quiz which requires you to recall that very piece of information. Suddenly, the tables have been turned, and it is thus who diligently learned off the roles of individual monks within a medieval monastery who are in the driving seat - at long last.
See how you fare in this quiz, which a selection of the short questions from recent Junior Cert papers. And remember - those who don't study history are doomed to repeat. (I do not possess the capacity to force you to resit your Junior Cert should you fail this quiz, alas).
