CAMPANOLOGIST: one that practices or is skilled in the art of bell ringing

The first bells were rung some 4,000 years ago during the Bronze Age, when they were forged from metal plates. By the 17th century, bells were ringing around the world and in Britain campanology had become a "gentleman's recreation." But although the first campanologists' organization, the Society of College Youths, was founded in 1637, the words "campanology" and "campanologist" (from campana, Late Latin for "bell") did not debut in English publications until around 1823 and 1857, respectively.
