Saint Patrick

Ireland's patron saint. Modern Irish scholarship has raised a number of interesting questions about the status, political acumen and mission of Saint Patrick, and these are incorporated in to the telling of the story - in which the saint makes a personal appearance - in three of the chapters of the first book of Edward Rutherfurd's Irish saga.




 

 

 

Did You Know?
The Guillotine lives on! Within Paris’ 11th district, at the corner of the streets of La Croix-Faubin and Roquette, there are five concrete plates that pop out of the asphalt around them. Those five spots are what is left from the French guillotine. These marks of the former French judicial system have been kept and are still visible today.
