Summary The real story of Patrick and his times is even better than the tales that have grown up around him. 'The World of Saint Patrick' brings together for the first time the greatest and most important works of early Christian Ireland in a fresh, vibrant translation for general readers. It also includes a collection of early church laws, imaginative tales of Patrick's struggles with pagan kings, soaring hymns of praise, and a prayer of protection against forces of evil, including 'the magic of women, blacksmiths, and druids'
