    Clarke's Commentary on Luke 8:27

    A certain man - See the case of this demoniac considered at large, on the parallel places, Matthew 8:28-34 (note); Mark 5:1-20 (note). In India deranged persons walk at liberty through the streets and country in all manner of dresses; sometimes entirely naked; and often perish while strolling from place to place. It is the same in Ireland, as there are no public asylums either there or in India for insane people.
