Description: Gathering together a number of texts written in Latin in the fourth and fifth centuries A.D., Liam De Paor masterfully illustrates the spread of Christianity through Western Europe to Ireland and sheds light on the organization of the western church at the time.

Saint Patrick's World also includes a selection of later writings and extracts, the work of early medieval authors who tried to tell the story on the basis both of documents now lost and of legends and folktales. The ancient writings selected and translated here place at the disposal of the general reader and the interested student the main evidence for one of the most important episodes in Irish history: the peaceful transformation of a pagan tribal society into a Christian kingdom which soon entered its Golden Age.
