Father Widdershins, O. P., was a noted Thomist and skeptic of the Scrupularian Heresy and claims an answer to Orduri della Vacca's question will be forthcoming now that his Casuistry Institute has an an electronic syllogism machine with self-winding dialectic (Saint Fidgeta and Other Parodies, 62).


Widdershins means to go counterclockwise (anticlockwise) around an object, sometimes considered as unlucky.  Because the sun played a highly important role in older religions, to go against it was considered bad luck for sun-worshiping traditions[1].

The O.P. indicates the Order of Preachers, also known as the Dominican Order[2].
