Ever Present in Yoknapatawpha?: 

When Bayard remembers church services before the Civil War in "The Unvanquished" and again in The Unvanquished, he recalls that "the bishop" visited the church in Yoknapatawpha at least once; the bishop's official ring "looked big as a pistol target" (86, 137). "Episcopal" as a word derives from the idea of bishops; in the hierarchy of the Episcopal religion, a Bishop would preside over churches spread across a large area.
