Overview

Who was Saint Patrick? The only true apostle of Ireland who more or less converted the country single-handedly? or a Christian bishop from the embattled edge of a crumbling empire?

All that can really be known of Saint Patrick comes from his authentic writings: the Confessio and the Epistola (Address to the Soldiers of Coroticus). Thomas O’Loughlin’s engaging and scholarly reflections on these fifth-century texts lead us into a greater understanding of the mind of Patrick, the man, believer, and missionary. Explanatory notes woven through the translations illuminate a very different world and time; it is not long before we realize, however, that St. Patrick’s theology is no less relevant to our own.

The Logos Bible Software edition of Saint Patrick: The Man and His Works will give you insight into the well-known and influential “Apostle of Ireland.” The writings and biographical information contained in this resource will provide you with great historical and theological content for your digital library. All Scripture passages are linked to your favorite Bible translation in your library.
