Saint Patrick Quiz

The Saint Patrick Quiz.

The saints of the Christian faith are truly fascinating people for the most part. Oftentimes their legends are so larger than life that common onlookers are unable to separate fact from fiction surrounding these individuals. Whether they be St. George who allegedly slayed a great serpent or St. Padre Pio who received the wounds of stigmata for his dedication to helping the children of God. The traces of divinity that slip into these stories may bother a number of historians, but they still allude to a number of interesting implications when taken either figuratively or at face value.

Case in point, let us turn our attention to Saint Patrick. Patrick is one of the most famous Christian saints of all time. The man’s legacy has spread out to touch multiple corners of the globe. What’s more, that legacy contains a wealth of genuine grounded history as well as some of the more divine elements that make the saints such interesting subjects of study. Patrick was at the head of great social change. His charisma and wisdom spoke to a people with such authority that he was able to shake the foundations of an entire nation. What’s more, he become something of a folk hero in his own time so great was his popularity.

This quiz will seek to highlight a blend of the history and legends surrounding Patrick. While we can’t say with certainty whether one hundred percent of the divine acts attributed to Patrick were entirely accurate, they are still a part of his history as he is perceived now.
