Most likely you’ve heard of Saint Patrick. You’ve probably even worn an article of green clothing on the day celebrating this well-known churchman. But do you know who Saint Patrick was? Why has he continued to be so widely known and celebrated over 1,500 years after his death? Much of the life of Saint Patrick is shrouded in mystery and conjecture. In these volumes, Saint Patrick scholars piece together evidence and information from which emerges an intriguing figure—the Apostle to the Irish. Born in Roman Britain, Patrick was captured by raiders at the age of 16 and enslaved in Ireland. After 6 years of servitude, Patrick escaped to his home and family, but would later return to the island of his captivity to bring them the message of Jesus Christ.
