These are the Declaration Latin: Confessio  and the Letter to the soldiers of Coroticus Latin: Epistola from which come the only generally accepted details of his life. In it, Patrick gives a short account of his life and his mission.
Most available details of his life are from subsequent hagiographies and annalswhich have considerable value but lack the empiricism scholars depend on today. Hagiography records other names he is said to have borne.
Harvey argues that Cothraige "has the form of a classic Old Irish tribal and therefore place- name", noting that Ail Coithrigi is a name for the Rock of Casheland the place-names Cothrugu and Catrige are attested in Counties Antrim and Carlow.
His own writings provide no evidence for any dating more precise than the 5th century generally. His Biblical quotations are a mixture of the Old Latin version and the Vulgatecompleted in the early 5th century, suggesting he was writing "at the point of transition from Old Latin to Vulgate",  although it is possible the Vulgate readings may have been added later, replacing earlier readings.
In "the elder Patrick" Irish: Patraic Sen is said to have died: Supporting the later date, the annals record that in "the relics of Patrick were placed sixty years after his death in a shrine by Colum Cille " emphasis added.
Palladius was not the only early cleric in Ireland at this time. Ciaran, along with saints AuxiliusSecundinus and Iserninusis also associated with early churches in Munster and Leinster. By this reading, Palladius was active in Ireland until the s.
The appointment of Palladius and his fellow-bishops was not obviously a mission to convert the Irish, but more probably intended to minister to existing Christian communities in Ireland.
This activity was limited to the southern half of Ireland, and there is no evidence for them in Ulster or Connacht.
The Palladian mission should not be contrasted with later "British" missions, but forms a part of them;  nor can the work of Palladius be uncritically equated with that of Saint Patrick, as was once traditional.
Calpurnius, his father, was a decurion and deaconhis grandfather Potitus a priestfrom Banna Venta Berniae,  a location otherwise unknown,    though identified in one tradition as Glannoventa, modern Ravenglass in Cumbria, in what is now England; claims have been advanced for locations in both present-day Scotland and Wales.
According to the Confession of Saint Patrick, at the age of sixteen he was captured by a group of Irish pirates. Patrick writes in the Confession  that the time he spent in captivity was critical to his spiritual development. He explains that the Lord had mercy on his youth and ignorance, and afforded him the opportunity to be forgiven his sins and convert to Christianity.
While in captivity, he worked as a shepherd and strengthened his relationship with God through prayer, eventually leading him to convert to Christianity. Fleeing his master, he travelled to a port, two hundred miles away,  where he found a ship and with difficulty persuaded the captain to take him.
After Patrick prayed for sustenance, they encountered a herd of wild boar ;  since this was shortly after Patrick had urged them to put their faith in God, his prestige in the group was greatly increased.
After various adventures, he returned home to his family, now in his early twenties. Patrick recounts that he had a vision a few years after returning home: I saw a man coming, as it were from Ireland.
His name was Victoricus, and he carried many letters, and he gave me one of them. I read the heading: As I began the letter, I imagined in that moment that I heard the voice of those very people who were near the wood of Foclutwhich is beside the western sea—and they cried out, as with one voice: Hood suggests that the Victoricus of St.
