Patrick is the first identifiable person in Irish history to have his life story recorded. Published in association with the launch of the St Patrick’s Confessio Hypertext Stack, this booklet presents the Saint’s own account of his capture, slavery and mission in Ireland in a straightforward and accurate English translation. The book serves as an ancillary volume to the Royal Irish Academy’s “Dictionary of Medieval Latin from Celtic Sources” project, whose main publications are detailed here.
