WALL STREET JOURNAL, Terry Golway: ''[Flechner's] brilliant use of source material from Irish, British and Roman writers provides context and historical sweep.'' (14 MAR 2019) THE SUNDAY TIMES, William Laffan: ''Highly readable despite the complexity of the material, it serves as a scrupulous guide to the shifting web of actuality and myth that characterises Patrick's life and cult.'' (31 MAR 2019) THE IRISH TIMES, Neil Hegarty: ''absorbing investigation into the lives and afterlives of Ireland's patron saint... a fascinating and enlightening exploration of early Christian Ireland, Britain and Europe.'' (16 MAR 2019) HISTORY IRELAND, Joe Culley: ''Saint Patrick Retold is that rare amalgam of academic rigour and stylish storytelling which will appeal as much to the general reader as to those engulfed in the discipline.'' (MAR 2019) THE SPECTATOR, Mary Kenny: ''Flechner's authorial aim is both academic and popular... Patrick does come across as a genuinely interesting personality.'' (14 MAR 2019) CHURCH TIMES, Nicholas Cranfield: ''Flechner has a good eye for a story... This book does its subject justice.'' (15 MAR 2019) CATHOLIC HERALD, David Platzer: ''as clear a picture as we are likely to have of Patrick, in the context of the Ireland of his time, and also in regard to the legend that developed after his death.'' (28 MAR 2019)
