Medbh is a Celtic wise woman. When we join her, she is bound, naked, to a stake awaiting her death at the hands of her neighbors and the Black Monks. As her pier smolders and finally catches, she remembers her life and the events that brought her to this place in time. Her sins were many: healing the sick, caring for the animals of her village, fighting the plague, honoring the earth and its inhabitants. Fear and hatred rise like the flames that will claim her life and she turns to her Goddess for release.
