It was an antistatic belief, until the late 18th century, that ringing church bells repelled lightning; so, the inscription fulgura frango, meaning ‘I chase lightning, was bored on many church bells.
Bell ringers would rush to ring the bells, during thunderstorms, without knowing that it is the worst place to be at that time!
Lightning struck and killed a total of 103 bell-ringers, between 1753 and 1786 in France, resulting in a ban to this custom.
