Saint Patrick

The Man And His Works

Thomas O'Loughlin

The only true apostle of Ireland who more or less converted the country the single-handed? or A Christian bishop from the embattled edge of a crumbling empire?

All that can really be known of Patrick comes from his authentic writings - the Confessio and the Epistola (Address to the Soldiers of Coroticus). Thomas O'Loughlin's engaging yet scholarly reflections on these fifth-century texts lead us into a greater understanding of the mind of Patrick, the man, believer and missionary.
