Saint Patrick (LatinPatriciusIrishPádraig [ˈpˠaːd̪ˠɾˠəɟ]WelshPadrig) was a fifth-century Romano-British Christian missionary and bishop in Ireland. Known as the "Apostle of Ireland", he is the primary patron saint of Ireland, along with saints Brigit of Kildare and Columba. He is also venerated in the Anglican Communion, the Old Catholic Church and in the Eastern Orthodox Church as equal-to-the-apostles and Enlightener of Ireland.[2]


Saint or sinner? Holy woman or whore? Mary Magdalene plays a complex role in the Christian story, she may, with the exception of Jesus and his mother, have inspired more devotion than any other New Testament figure. But, through the centuries, layer upon layer has been added to her legend and her portrayal has served patriarchal and political purposes. Now, her story of resistance and struggle is being recast as a parable for female liberation.
