The Story of St Patrick Audio Book

Hear the story of the man behind the Saint

Download our engaging and immersive audio book that brings the story of St Patrick to life.  This beautifully produced and acclaimed audio book weaves the tale of St Patrick, Ireland’s iconic patron saint. It helps you to hear the story of Patrick in his own words, as it uses Patrick’s own writings combined with the latest archaeological and historical research, to disentangle the real Patrick from the Super Saint of later legend, and to better understand the man behind the myth as he attempted to establish Christianity at the edge of the known world.

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.
