The Story of St Patrick in his own words
By combining the expert knowledge of historian and archaeologist Terry O’Hagan and the Abarta team, with the natural storyteller Gerry O’Brien, this audio book is a truly compelling and original production. The audio book draws on new translations of Patrick’s own writings. These provide remarkable insights into the man himself, and it also uses the latest archaeological evidence to try to reconstruct the Ireland he experienced. Although this audio book may help to shatter some of the well-established myths of Saint Patrick such as the banishing of snakes, you can experience a far greater story – the story of a young man taken into captivity and brought far from home, who made a daring escape from slavery only to return again, to teach, convert and strive against impossible odds in an extremely dangerous environment to bring Christianity to the Irish.
