Confession of Saint Patrick : Letter to Coroticus - 98 edition

Confession of Saint Patrick :  Letter to Coroticus (ISBN10: 0385491638; ISBN13: 9780385491631)
ISBN13: 978-0385491631
ISBN10: 0385491638

Summary: The autobiography of one of the most popular saints in history, now available in a new translation. Beyond being recognized as the patron saint of Ireland (perhaps for having chased some nonexistent snakes off the Emerald Isle), little else is popularly known about Saint Patrick.And yet, Patrick left behind a unique document, his Confession, which tells us much about both his life and his beliefs.This autobiography, originally written in the fifth century, and short by modern standar
ds, is nonetheless a work that fascinates with its glimpse into the life of an intriguing man, and inspires with its testament of faith.Here, in this new edition from internationally acclaimed translator John Skinner, the character of Patrick, his era, and his world vividly come to life. Also included in this volume is the only other document known to have been written by Patrick, a letter he wrote to the soldiers of Coroticus--also Christians--who had raided parts of Ireland and taken away prisoners who were then sold into slavery.This letter is a wonderful demonstration of Patrick's rhetorical fire.Quite irate, Patrick harangues his fellow Christians, and the results are every bit as autobiographically revealing as the Confession. John O'Donohue, author of Anam Cara, provides an insightful foreword that re-creates the unique spirituality of Patrick and of the Irish people, and shows how it applies to our lives today.
