I’d like to see that spear made of mistletoe wood! He must have been a clever god who made it because mistletoe doesn’t exactly grow it’s own wood. I believe it is parasitic on the wood of the tree it grows on. Stuff of gardening legend! I like all the stories though, especially the Church pragmatism. Pity that attitude did not prevail through history!

Indeed the mistletoe spear is an odd idea given as you say that the plant is basically a weed. Still a fun story/
