Summary
Ireland's patron saint has long been shrouded in legend: he drove the snakes out of Ireland; he triumphed over Druids and their supernatural powers; he used a shamrock to explain the Christian mystery of the Trinity. But his true story is more fascinating than the myths. Combining Patrick's own heartfelt account of his life with the turbulent history of the British Isles in the last years of the Roman Empire, Freeman brilliantly brings to life the real Patrick, shorn of legend, and shows how he helped to change Irish history and culture
