Below is an account of our national apostle, Saint Patrick, commemorated on March 17. It was written as part of a series of short lives of the saints which was published in Boston in 1860. The author, Charles B. Fairbanks, was a convert to Catholicism and this work was published posthumously. His account speaks very confidently of the birthplace, burial place and chronology of Saint Patrick, all of which are still very much debated by modern scholars. For further reading on Saint Patrick please visit my other site Trias Thaumaturga which is dedicated to the three patrons of Ireland.
