HISTORY OF HEADSTONES
By Cara Links
A little knowledge of Latin can unlock some interesting stories set in epitaphs.
For instance the epitaph of Miler Magrath R.C.Bishop of Down, who traded his religion once to become the Protestant Archbishop of Cashel. This Franciscan man wrote his own epitaph, which is set on a tomb at Cashel Cathedral.
He died in 1621 aged 100 years and, wrote a mystery into the last couplet of his epitaph
Venerat In Dunum Primo Sanctissimus Olim
Patricius Nostri Gloria Magna Soli
Huic Ego Succedens, Ultinam Tam Sanctus Ut
Sec Duni Primo Tempore Praesul Eram.
Anglia Lustra Decem Sed Post Tua Scepta
Principibus Placui Marte Tonante Tuis
His Ubi Sum Positus Non Sum, Sum Non Ubi Non
Sum Nec In Ambobus Sum Nec Utroqcue Loci.
Which when read in a language you understand quickly reads.
Patrick, the glory of our isle and gown,
First a bishop in the see of down
I wish that I, succeeded him in place
As bishop, had an equal grace,
I served thee, England, fifty years in jars
And pleased thy princes in the midst of wars.
Here where I'm placed I'm not; and thus the case is
I'm not in both, yet am in both the places.
Historians have suggested that the last two lines suggest that the Archbishop had a reversal of faith at the end and had his buried elsewhere.
