Podcast Audio File (MP3)

Nothing else has coloured Lewis psychology in the last two centuries as strongly as the arrival of evangelical Calvinism in the early 19th century. And its arrival is located on the hill of Cnoc Eodhail overlooking Baile na Cille. The story is included of the extensive open-air communion revivals that took place here in the early 1820s under the guidance of the Rev Alexander MacLeod. None of the other stories echoes into present day Lewis as does this one.
