Sunday Styles: Potter's Field

Potter’s field -- A place for the burial of indigent or unknown persons. The term derives from a Biblical reference, Matthew 27.7, where, with regard to Judas throwing down the silver to betray Jesus, is written, “And they [priests] took counsel, and bought with them [the pieces of silver] the potter’s field, to bury strangers in.”
