The fame of St. Fursa (f r., Furcy), who is still honoured as the Patron of Lagny and of Peronne, does not, as in the case of St. C olumban, rest upon the importance of the schools and monasteries founded by him so much as on the fact that his visions of heaven land hell are among the first and most interesting of that circle of visions which culminate in the Divina Commedia of Dante. Such apocalypses are not confined to Christianity, and in a forth coming work of Mr. David N utt, the reader will soon have an opportunity of comparing those of our Irish seers with their fore runners, the non-christian visitants of the other world, such as are given in the voyages of Bran, son of Febal, of Maelduin, of Connla and others.
