This chapter surveys the continuing tradition of folly for Christ's sake, not in a fully comprehensive study but in sketches of representative figures and regions — a holy wanderer on the roads of 18th-century France and Italy, a professor in 19th-century Oxford, the fools for Christ's sake in modern Ireland.
