    Taking a fresh approach to the search for 'the real Saint Patrick' and the origins and perpetuation of his myth, O'Loughlin begins by looking at what we expect from history, and the very different expectations of the hagiographers who made Patrick famous and helped preserve his writings. The second part of the book comprises fresh translations of the basic sources for Patrick and his cult, including the saint's own Confessio and Epistola militibus Corotici and the Vita Patricii by Muirchu.
