Valentine Greatrakes was an Irishman notable for having held a conversation with the prophets Moses and Aaron in the Shadow House in 1666. This event, surprising enough in itself, is the more remarkable since the three conversed in Hebrew - a language which Greatrakes, who was by birth a farmer, is unlikely to have studied[23].
