Now now, aren't you reading too much into Wolfe's christian
background? Funny thing is that when I found out he is a converted
catholic (he mentioned it in some interview I read on the web), this
fact alone really put me off his books for a while, and I was reading
too much into certain scenes he describes, too (like the one where
Maytera's daughter and Silk/Horn "re-invent" the communion).

Your definition of "hallowed ground" might not fit Wolfe's. 

All the best & bye for now,
