The Latin Letters of St. Patrick

The two fifth-century Latin letters of St. Patrick provide scholars and students with a unique window into early Irish history, culture, and religion. My project will offer a revised Latin text of the letters along with an English translation and commentary. The edition will also include two seventh-century lives of Patrick by the Irish churchmen Muirchu and Tirechan, as well as short Latin and Old Irish supplemental texts from the early medieval period. This project has been accepted for publication in the "Library of Early Christianity" series from the Catholic University of America Press.
