Two authentic letters from him survive, from which come the only universally accepted details of his life.

Whe Saint Coroticud Latin: When he was about 16 he was captured from Britain by Irish raiders and taken as a slave to Ireland, where he lived for six years before escaping and returning to his family. After entering the Church, he returned to Ireland as an ordained bishop in the north and west of the island, but little is known about the places where he worked.

By the seventh century he had come to be revered as the patron saint of Ireland. The Irish monastery system evolved after the time of Patrick and the Irish church did not develop the diocesan model that Patrick and the other early missionaries had tried to establish. Most available details of his life are from later hagiographies from the 7th century onwards, and these are now not accepted without detailed criticism.


Uncritical acceptance of the Annals of Ulster would imply that he lived from toand ministered in what is modern day Northern Ireland from onwards. The dates of Patrick’s life cannot be fixed with certainty, but on coroticue widespread interpretation he was active as a missionary in Ireland during the second half of the 5th century.

Saint Patrick’s Day 17 Marchsupposedly the day of his death, is celebrated both in and outside of Ireland, as both a liturgical and non-liturgical holiday.

In the dioceses of Ireland it is both a solemnity and a holy day of obligation and outside of Ireland, it can be a celebration of Ireland itself. Trivia About Letter to the Sol No trivia or quizzes yet. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
