One example is the idea - once popular in the Roman Catholic church - that absolution tor sins could be acquired via a financial settlement with the priesthood. For the shallow oi pocltet, a cheaper source or ‘indulgences’ was believed to be the summit of oroagh Patrick, a mountain in Ireland. And it was here, among the swirling winds oi County Mayo, that ideas

began to form which shaped the show . . .
