Ella who is Sooze Folklore: Widdershins - superstitions (25) Folklore: Widdershins - superstitions 25 Jul 07

I am reading Dorothy L Sayers Book, the Nine Tailors at the moment. And she mentioned Widdershins, that the chap left the church and was careful to make sure he looked around the church going around to the right or Widdershins.

Do any of you know the superstition, and what other superstitions use the meaning. Where'd it come from?
