The 1940 parish anniversary book reported that the snake-and-cup emblem of Saint John the Apostle (by the 47 th Street door) came from an ancient legend: “ according to the tradition handed down by Saint Isidore, the idolatrous enemies of the Saint having poisoned the wine which he used for the holy sacrifice of the Mass, hoped thus to kill him. But the Saint frustrated their design, for on his blessing the wine a serpent came forth to warn him.”

The story first appeared in the Apocrypha — a collection of manuscripts not considered reliable enough to be included in the Bible. In the Sixth century, St. Isidore included the texts in an ambitious encyclopedia of all world knowledge. His information was then folded into the 13 th century Golden Legend collection of saints lore, and spread from there.

Versions of the story differ: the wine was sometimes Communion wine; more usually, it was a beverage given to John at the Temple of Artemis or in the Marketplace. But the truth might actually be related to the roots of modern medical science.

The Poisoned Chalice is the fourth novel in the Star Trek: The Fall series. Written by James Swallow , the novel featured the crew of the USS Titan , and was published in November 2013 .

Discuss the reasons why countries might choose to employ spies. Ask students to make lists of the types of mission spies might be sent on. Research the rationale behind espionage at en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Espionage . Explain the differences between industrial, military and governmental espionage and ask students to list the benefits and risks these practices bring. Introduce the work of MI5 to the class using the organisation's myths and misunderstandings webpage ( mi5.gov.uk/output/Page119.html ). Ask pairs of students to debate whether spying is still necessary in a post-cold war era making use of the opinions collected at news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/talking_point/1182105.stm .

Help students to understand why the death of Alexander Litvinenko is making headlines across the world by making a timeline of the events leading up to his death ( observer.theguardian.com/uk_news/story/0,,1962761,00.html ). Students may find it helpful to read an obituary of the poisoned spy to gain a general overview of the case ( theguardian.com/russia/article/0,,1956643,00.html ). More information on the case can be found at theguardian.com/russia/0,,180992,00.html .

In the history classroom, introduce students to the work of spies from different eras ( www.crimelibrary.com/terrorists_spies/spies/index.html ). As part of a wider study of Europe during the second world war, focus on the story of the Cambridge Five, who included Anthony Blunt and Kim Philby ( bbc.co.uk/history/worldwars/coldwar/cambridge_spies_01.shtml ). Older students might find the FBI's online archive a good place to research espionage in the cold war era ( fbi.gov/libref/historic/famcases/famcases.htm ).

The Titan is recalled to Earth, where Akaar has Riker promoted to admiral . Eventually, he informs him that evidence that the True Way were behind the assassination of President Bacco is being deliberately ignored by Pro Tem President Ishan , who is instead stirring up ill feelings against the Typhon Pact and the Andorians . Riker has Vale temporarily placed in command of the USS Lionheart to investigate further.

Meanwhile, Tuvok is recruited as part of Active Four , a secret special ops team, which also includes Nog and Thomas Riker , led by Starfleet Intelligence operative Jan Kincade and acting under orders from Ishan's chief of staff Velk . They are supposed to be tracking down the Tzenkethi responsible for the assassination but quickly realise their targets are Cardassians . They manage to capture four True Way operatives but instead of taking them back to Earth they are ordered to take them to an Imperial Intelligence base staffed by Klingon mercenaries.

Vale is contacted by Sarina Douglas , who gives her the location where Bashir is being held. Troi enlists the help of the Andorians, who grant Bashir citizenship and make him an honorary member of the Andorian envoy's family, forcing his guards to release him into their custody. Despite an attempt to murder him en route by one of the Lionheart' s crew, Seth Maslan , he is delivered safely to Andoria .
