In addition to its significant contribution to Patrician studies, this volume contains extensive introductory material on Irish history, including topics like the customs of the ancient church of Ireland and genealogical tables of Irish kings. Following the introduction, James Henthorn Todd begins by discussing the life and work of Palladius, believed to be a different figure whose works came to be attributed to Saint Patrick. Todd goes on to present the life and work of Saint Patrick and gives detailed accounts of his various missionary efforts in Ireland. He also includes discussions on interesting topics like the reason for Saint Patrick’s success in Ireland, establishing the date of his death, the rise of monasticism in Ireland, and more.

The Logos Bible Software edition of this volume is designed to encourage and enhance your study and understanding of early church history and Saint Patrick studies. Scripture passages link directly to your English translations and original-language texts, and important theological and historical concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. In addition, you can perform powerful searches by topic and find what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say about the Pelagian controversy in Ireland, early Irish Christianity, and many other topics related to the study of Saint Patrick.
