Description

This book provides the first collection of all seven medieval manuscripts of Patrick's letters. These manuscripts were transcribed by Dr. Freeman, who has also provided introductions and notes. Our knowledge of the life and work of the fifth-century missionary and bishop later known as St. Patrick comes only through the chance survival of two Latin letters which he wrote in his old age - the Confessio and the Epistola ad milites Corotici. These letters are two of the most remarkable documents of the early medieval period and offer a rare glimpse into the history and culture of Ireland at the dawn of the Middle Ages.
