Friday, January 9 brings something quite different to the Square Chapel audience - an atmospheric evening of horror and fantasy presented by Michael Sabbaton
. His one-man show, The Temple, is based on HP Lovecraft's Undersea Tale of Possession and Madness and tells the tale of what happens when a strange ivory carved head comes into the possession of a submarine commander and his subsequent descent into dissention and madness.
Etymologically, the German Samstag is traced back to Old High German Sambastag, which is derived, via the Greek [sigma][alpha][beta][beta][alpha][tau]ov (Sabbaton
, supposed to have once had a dialectal pronunciation Sambaton, evidenced also by the Rumanian Sambata/Sambata and Hungarian szombat) from Hebrew shahbath (from shabath, "to rest"), and has--within the largely compulsory occidental-Christian (for Stockhausen as well) articulation of the week, with its culmination in Sunday, at once the week's destination and starting-point--its German counterpart in the alternative name Sonnabend--the day before Sunday.
