Pentecostal woes

Today in 1565 the True Cross was taken and dipped in the sea in order to assuage the great drought. Doesn’t look like that’s going to be needed this year after all. (Kalebeul’s History of Barcelona now does moveable feasts, although not quite in the way it would like. It is also unsure to do with generalised descriptions of moveable feastdays that are however very clearly rooted in a particular time. If this description of Pentecost published in 1848 is assigned to Pentecost, 2008 it makes no historical sense, but if it is plonked on Pentecost, 1848 it makes no ritual sense, since Pentecost is moveable. What to do?)
