Many of the streets around the area of St Paul's Cathedral have names which relate to the area's religious importance. In medieval times, at the end of each day, the great cathedral would be closed up and the Dean and Chapter would process, with members of the cathedral staff and choristers, through the surrounding streets on their way back to their residence. At certain points they would stop and prayers would be said - - at Creed Lane, the 'Creed' would be recited, at Sermon Lane a sermon would be delivered, at Ave Maria Lane the 'Ave Maria' would be sung and then 'Amen' would be said at Amen Corner, the end point of the procession. The Dean & Chapter reside at Amen Court.
