    • Abstract:
      An encyclopedia entry for "Benefit of Clergy" is presented. It refers to a legal defense in Great Britain during the early times whereby those in Holy Orders were exempted from the jurisdiction of the ordinary courts. In 1705, the law extended the Benefit of Clergy to anyone who can memorize the lines of the first verse of the 51 Psalm. Before 1692, only bona-fide nuns were qualified to use the Benefit of Clergy.
