Did you know... during the Middle Ages the greatest virtue of the herb betony was as a guard against harm? It is not surprising most monastic cloisters would include the herb in their gardens. So powerful was this herb at warding off evil spirits, men and women wore amulets made from it. Considering that the Middle Ages confronted you with a host of splendid terrors - the plague, famine, sporadic plundering - your average serf needed any advantage he could get. I've tried to no avail to get the college to plant the herb on campus.
