Not illustrated. 1862 edition. Excerpt: ...postmodum, ut me ipsum im pendam pro animabus vestris." Confess. Patr. (Rer. Hib. Vet. Serip., vol. I; Proleg., pt I, p. cxvi.) There must have been some sort of settled government where there were "judges" and a legal "man-wyrth," and where an aavena could thus obtain the protection of " the constituted authorities." On one occasion the saint was seized, plundered, and put in bonds, but released after a fortnight's captivity, with all that had been taken from him, through the intervention, apparently, of one of his powerful protectors. At on another occasion he alludes to the privileges of free-birth, which he had resigned through becoming "a stranger and sojourner" in Ireland, it is evident that there, as elsewhere, the alien was ranked upon a footing of inferiority. The simple narrative of St Patrick, in which he details his troubles and his difficulties, stands out in striking contrast with the legendary traditions of later years. 5. Fust Fmger Joint 6. Second Finger Joint I I 7. Natl Joint 6. Trinepos The Italian noble counted his four quarterings from the completion of the Cognatio.

The Sipzal was the Teutonic method of counting relationship, the Hand originally meaning the complete Mag. He who could count it "pure blood" was Full-born to Odal-right. A. The German noble with 16 quarterings, and the Scandinavian lloldr of later times. B. The French noble with 8 quarterings. more
