Originally held in 1310, Red Mass marked the beginning of the Michaelmas (fall term) of the King's Bench during the reign of Edward of England. It was an occasion of pageantry and solemnity as judges, barristers and members of Parliament gathered to invoke God's blessing and guidance for themselves and their profession.
