While several origins relate to the Medieval construction method known as a ''Devil's Door'', much of this form of construct is related to England. When a Church or Chapel was constructed, it was seen as a ''bad omen'' to have a Doorway facing The North. Many newly converted Christians felt that the Devil ''came from The North'', as as such could have access to a Church. Another version assigns the construction of such ''Doors'' as to be used by Satan specifically. In the Middle Ages, some though that The Devil resided in the body of one unbaptized. When a Child or Adult was so ''admitted into The Church'', The Devil (or perhaps Demons) were released and ''needed an opening to leave'' The Church. Hence the design and later name ''The Devil's Door''.
