Things to look at more closely?

Or, words to conjure with:

1. tríar : the power of the number three and triplicity in Indo-European culture and Irish culture in particular (the popularity of triads)

2. manach : the history and institution of monasticism, and the absence of the concept in other cultures

3. saegul : the world, in a Christian context, and in the pre-christian (?) dichotomy of in centar and int alltar, this world and the otherworld

4. peccad : the Christian concept of sin and its analogs in other religions/cultures

5. Día : Who Is This God Person Anyway? (the philosophical blockbuster by Oolon Colluphid in The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy)

6. toingim : variations and literary uses of the “I swear...” formulas in Early Irish literature
