Re: How the Irish saved...

I read this long ago and was impressed with the description of the level of
civilization at an early time.  The author covered many pages with
explanations.  So one understood how much was at stake when things began
slipping away.

Hi- Yes, I recently read "How the Irish saved civilization". It was a very
interesting account of how, for awhile after the fall of Rome, much of
Western literature was preserved and appreciated by the Irish. The story of
St Patrick is told, and he turns out to have been a very saintly man indeed,
more than one might suppose from the light tone of his celebration day here
