Patrick 389-461 Missionary to Ireland. Patrick was born in Scotland. His fa- ther was a Roman centurion and also a deacon in a local New Testament church. Patrick was captured and taken to Ireland as a slave, but he escaped. After his conversion to Christ, he studied on the mainland in Gaul, and then returned to the heathen tribes in Ireland as a missionary.         He began scores of churches and baptized--immersed-- thousands of converts. He is largely responsible for the large number of Bible-believing Christians in Northern Ire- land, Scotland, and England. Patrick, his father, and also his grandfather, were proud of the fact that they were not controlled by the Roman Church, and that they were responsi- ble only to God. Patrick was later canonized by the Roman Church as a political move to control the Irish churches. He was thereafter known as "St. Patrick."

ARTIST'S NOTE: The Irish "wearin' o' the green" is the pre- dominant color. Patrick's Latin ancestry is pictured, and also the fire and zeal with which he preached to the heathen tribes in the forests of Ireland.
