Tales of St. Patrick

by Eileen Dunlop

From the dust jacket: "Not much is known for certain about Patrick, the celebrated patron saint of Ireland. Using Patrick's own writings and other ancient sources, while acknowledging that many of the best-known stories about him are clearly legends, Eileen Dunlop has written about what Patrick's life might have been like. Beginning with his privileged childhood in fifth century Britain, and continuing on through his abduction into slavery in Ireland and his religious awakening, Dunlop paints a portrait of a man who deeply loved God and the Irish people. After many setbacks and years of religious study, Patrick became Bishop of Ireland. He traveled throughout the country and taught Christianity to a largely pagan population. One of the many legends about St. Patrick proclaims that on the night he died, no darkness fell."
