Excerpt from St. Patrick at Tara: A Forest Play

Play, or to defend in a work, which is avowedly imaginative, though based on historical sources and deductions, my views on early Irish civilization and religion. The antiquity of the legends of St. Patrick, such as those of the lighting of the Paschal fire on the Beltane feast, of the contest with the druids and of the raising of the ghost of Cuchulainn, is very great, and they are characteristic of the cen turies of the spread of Christianity, in which they arose. The dif ficulties, which St. Patrick is represented as meeting and the way in which he met them, can be illustrated from the lives of many missionaries. The story of the spread of Christianity under the wing of Rome is the most important subject in the history of modem civilization, and I make no apology in dealing with it in a serious vein at a gathering of the ¿ower of the most modern and most recently founded civilization in the world, that of California. The Bohemian Club of San Francisco stands for the most characteristic manifestation of this most western, American, California civilization in its Grove Play, and to the members of the Club at their annual outing, the traditional High Jinks, this study of the life and work of the patron saint of Ireland, the home of the most western, European, Celtic civilization, is now offered.
