Product Description

Beyond being the patron saint of Ireland (and having chased some nonexistent snakes from the Emerald Isle), relatively little is known about Saint Patrick. Still, Patrick left behind a unique document known as his Confession, which tells us more about the life and beliefs of this popular saint. This autobiography, originally written in the fifth century is a fascinating work that delves into the life of this intriguing man and his testament of faith.
In this new translation from internationally acclaimed translator John Skinner, the character and world of St. Patrick are brought vividly to life. In addition, this volume contains the only known document apart from his Confession to have been written by Patrick. In a letter he wrote to the soldiers of Coroticus (also Christians), Patrick demonstrates his passion for justice by reprimanding the infantry for raiding parts of Ireland in order to sell captives into slavery. In an irate tone, Patrick scorns his fellow Christians for such dreadful deeds, and his resultant writing is every bit as revealing as his Confession.
