Was St. Patrick Really Italian?
Every year articles pop up that St. Patrick was in fact not Irish, but Italian. St. Patrick was born around 432 AD and died around 461 AD. Story is that St. Patrick was kidnapped at the age of 16 from Rome and was brought to Ireland as a slave. It is well known that St. Patrick was born in Britain to a wealthy Romano-British Family; he was believed to have died on March 17th. During the time of his captivity he worked as a Shepard turning to religion for solace. At this time he became a devout Christian. Irish folklore tells that one of his ways to explain the Christian doctrine of the trinity was to use a shamrock. St. Patrick preached the Gospel converting thousands of people, and began building churches. Although St. Patrick is the patron saint of Ireland, anyone can celebrate St. Patrick’s Day as well.
