Despite the great success of his academic case compilations on criminal psychology and sex offenders, his views on female felons proved controversial among colleagues and his wider readership. Wulffen’s views of sexual identity – the fifth criterion in ­Oosterhuis’s definition – also grew increasingly conflicted with regard to the nexus between sexuality and criminality.

It is fair to state that, since the Reformation, the Protestant Church has acknowledged the importance of Gaelic as a medium for its ministry, and that it has used the language fairly consistently as a medium for the Christian message proclaimed from its pulpits. There have been times when the commitment of the Church to Gaelic has faltered. This has happened largely because the language is often

The anxiety about change, this love of sameness, is a familiar one in Beckett. However, the deadened ‘dead end’ is one the narrative-self refuses to accept, as it continues to create, to start again, hoping for a change that will bring primal contact.
