St Patrick

As a vigorous advocate of the view that history is a science, JB Bury (1861-1927) was keen to undertake 'a methodical examination of the sources' and to avoid sectarian bias in this biography of Ireland's patron saint. He therefore dispels many myths about Patrick, weighs the evidence of the earliest biographical accounts and the saint's own writings, and sets him within the political and religious contexts of the late-Roman world.
