Description

He first came to Ireland as a captive. He returned with a mission and forged a place in legend. St. Patrick was a real man, but so many myths and legends have been weaved around his life that his true story is shrouded from view. BIOGRAPHY unravels the threads of the life of the legendary holy man in this gripping program. Artful re-enactments capture the pivotal moments in his life, from his abduction by Irish raiders at age 15 to his return to live among the pagan residents of the Emerald Isle in an effort to convert them to Christianity. Religious scholars reveal how his success led a rival bishop to slander Patrick, and after the attack he seems to have simply disappeared. Finally, hear his own words taken from the Confessio, in which the future saint defends his calling with integrity, passion and persuasiveness. Join BIOGRAPHY for the sweeping story of the man who sowed the seeds of Christianity in Ireland, and became virtually synonymous with his adopted homeland.
