Nobody came up with 'campanologist'!. Most churches only have 'tolling' bells that just swing back and forth, or carillions, which are operated with wires and hammers. A full peal of bells is much more complex and and is found in many older churches and cathedrals in the UK and Ireland. A ringing bell can be paused at the top of its swing, which goes more than 360 degrees, allowing for complex patterns and sequences. Bells are controlled and timed by trained bell ringers, campanologists. A bell tower is called a 'campanile', such as the famous one in Trinity College Dublin, although that just has a mechanical bell. St Patrick's Cathedral in Dublin (Anglican) has a very large peal of bells, and the sound of bells on great occasions is a wonderful experience.
