Patrick, who became the patron saint of Ireland, was born into a Roman ruling family in 390 AD, in Britain. At the age of fourteen he was enslaved by a gang of Irish raiders and spent the next six years as a shepherd on a mountain top in County Armagh. A vision of ships persuaded him to escape. He later studied for the priesthood, was made a bishop, and returned to Ireland, as a missionary in 432 AD. Many Celtic kings were converted along with all of their people. Many legends are told of that time; he banished all snakes, (a symbol of evil), from Ireland. The painting uses many other symbols: the shamrock (the Trinity), the harp, peacocks and angels.
