Saint Ninian's isn't a church, it's simply a giant house. The mouse Ninian and his wife were supposed to build it together but he didn't help so when she finished building, she put up a sign that said "This ain't Ninian's!" but the sign faded over time. This isn't just me being stupid, it says so in tLoL

*sigh* I might get this topic closed.

Ok, so St. Ninians WAS in fact a church, for it was used as a church sometime over a long period of time.It was not built for church uses at first.  It was used to house Luke and his tribe before Martin, but as Jet said, it did have that origin.

Oh yeah, I remember. But I thought that was just a funny legend devised by the teller?

No, she's asked if the story is true and Luke answers for her, saying that it is

Are you sure Luke just wasn't playing around when he said that it was a true story?

This is a sort of topic that I think changes as the series moves on and away from religious undertones. In the first book, you could say that it was a church and simply that. As more books began coming out, I think that Brian added this little side-story so that the church setting would appeal to a wider spectrum of readers.

Yeah... It wasn't mentioned in many books as an actual setting, only in... let's see... redwall, Pearls of Lutra, Legend of Luke, and maybe mossflower.

That's because they burned it to the ground in Pearls of Lutra.

Who ordered Ninian's to be burned? Was it Rollo because of the history of vermin using it as a hideaway?

Pretty much. . . The final straw was when Piknim (sp?) died there trying to get a pearl from the jackdaws. Then Rollo made a big speech on the history of vermin who lived there and made their headquarters there and ordered it to burned.

Yes it was. I liked Piknim too. . . . . Still, I suppose BJ knew what he was doing.
