St. Patrick is without a doubt the most famous saint associated with Ireland. Its holiday is celebrated all over the world and is a common symbol of Irish patriotism. His legends have become commonplace in our understanding of Ireland, and the image of the bishop with a clover is an immediately recognizable symbol for many. But despite his popularity, we know very little about the real man. It seems that the legend of St. Patrick has become much more famous than the historical individual.

 

Bemorepanda collected for you interesting facts, here are 20 of them about the real St. Patrick.

 

1. The real name may not have been Patrick. We do not know for sure what his birth name is, but the tradition is that it was Maewyn Succat. He later changed it to Patrick when he became bishop, because it means "noble" in Latin.

2. There are surviving copies of the texts written by St. Patrick. Two Latin works called "Confessions" and "Letter to the Soldiers of Coroticus." These works provide the primary sources for what we know about him.

3. Dating the life of St. Patrick is difficult, but most estimates put it in the middle of the fifth century. Given that he refers to the Frankish people (who lived in places where Germany and France are now) as pagans in one of his works, this assumes that he was written between 451, with a large amount of francs flowing into Gaul is today Western Europe) and 496, when the French were baptized in large numbers.

4. There is a prayer that is said to have been written by St. Patrick, entitled "St. Patrick's Breastplate," but he being the author is now widely rejected by scholars.

5. No one knows where St. Patrick was born. It is a generally accepted fact that St. Patrick is not a native Irishman and is probably from Wales, but his specific place of birth is unclear. In his works he says that it is from a place called Bannavem Taburniae, but this location is not otherwise known.

6. St. Patrick was not the first Christian bishop in Ireland. This honor belongs to Bishop Palladius in the fifth century. Palladius was the Roman Catholic deacon sent by the Church to convert the Irish natives. Some speculate that this person was adopted through folklore and later combined with Patrick to form his legend.

7. He did not drive snakes from Ireland. Everything we know about biology tells us that Ireland has never been a home for snakes. The story was explained as a metaphor for Patrick's transformation of the native Druids left to Christianity. But pagan practices continued long after St. Patrick lived, so the exact meaning of the story is unknown.

 

8. Almost all the stories about St. Patrick were written centuries after he died. Two commonly cited sources are "The Life and Deeds of St. Patrick" by a Jocelin of Furness, who wrote about 1200, and "The Oldest Lives of St. Patrick" by an unknown MacEvin who wrote his works in the twentieth century. IX.

9. St. Patrick gives only the name of his father, Calpornius, and the father's grandfather, Potitus. He says his father was a deacon and his grandfather a priest. Although later the writers further explained the family tree. Jocelin and MacEvin say that his mother was a frank woman named Conceis. Conceis is said to be related to St. Martin of Tours. Although MacEvin claims to be his sister, Jocelin says she is his niece.

11. From the works of St. Patrick, we have gathered that he was abducted from his home at the age of sixteen and brought to Ireland, along with thousands of others, to be sold as slaves. Patrick worked as a pastor for six years. Jocelin says he is a slave to a pagan prince named Milcho, although Patrick says nothing about his captor. Saying only he was "the man I've been with for six years."

12. Jocelin and MacEvin attribute many miracles to St. Patrick in his youth and describe him as pious since the early years. Although Patrick seems to contradict these claims. Referring to his capture in his youth, he says that "at that time I did not know the true God."

13. St. Patrick is often said to have used mackerel to explain the concept of the Trinity to Irish pagans. Despite the fame of this story, shamrock or its significance in such a way is never mentioned in any work of St. Patrick and is apparently a legend much later attached to it.

14. Shamrock - popular Irish symbol, but not a symbol of Ireland. Already in the Middle Ages in the Irish tombs and manuscripts appeared an image of a harp.

18. St. Patrick, despite being known as the Patron Saint of Ireland, was never officially canonized. His recognition as a saint was made by popular opinion, and probably with the approval of a bishop. Although he is far from the only saint, he was never officially canonized. In fact, the church did not have any formal process for sanctification until the twelfth century. So it is safe to assume that St. Patrick will always be considered a saint.

the-history-of-april-fools-day-20-interest-facts-you-should-know

This holiday is not included in any calendar or country. However, this does not prevent people from celebrating this day on a grand scale.

 

Have you ever wondered where the origins of this holiday come from? Why didn't you choose another day for such a peculiar event? And not only in one country, but in many. Opinions are divided over the origin of this holiday. From this article you will learn not only about the history of April Fool's Day, but also about how residents of different countries celebrate this day, what traditions they have, and also get acquainted with the most interesting rallies that have become a real history.

 

Where did this date come from? There are several options for the origin of this merry holiday. Some are inclined to believe that this holiday is an echo of the ancient spring festival, the celebration of which fell on April. They played and joked a lot that day. Others think that the tradition of making fun of others dates back to the Middle Ages.

 

So far, there is no real evidence for any of the theories. There are many assumptions about the origin of this holiday. However, it all boils down to the fact that the source is still the medieval tradition of Europeans to arrange carnivals. Such a pagan holiday that Christians liked.

 

There are people who are sure that a similar holiday was celebrated in ancient Rome. They called it then the holiday of fools. Others are convinced that the origins of this event are ancient India, where the Day of Jokes fell on March 31st. There is also a third party. These are supporters of the idea that the tradition of joking came to us from the Irish.

 

There are some rather strange versions. For example, one of the options boils down to the fact that this holiday owes its appearance to the Neapolitan king Monterey. They say in honor of the fact that the earthquake stopped, the king was presented with a fish. A year later, Monterey began demanding the same fish. Unfortunately, it was not possible to find the exact same species, and the chef used another, which was as similar as possible to the previous one. However, the king could not be deceived, but he did not become angry, but on the contrary - laughed. 

 

Bemorepanda collected some facts about April Fools Day.

 

1. The coolest draw is considered to be April 1, 1986. The bottom line was that the newspaper published an announcement about the decision to dismantle the symbol of France - the Eiffel Tower. There was a proposal to move the famous object to another location. The article in all colors described the process of dismantling the tower, in which even American helicopters were supposed to take part. After that, they wanted to assemble the tower in a horizontal position and use the cranes to raise it. The project took 6 months. The Parisians, in frustrated feelings, began to besiege the editorial office, constantly calling them. But on the second day, an article with a refutation was published.

2. The British also got it in 1860. Many Londoners received invitations to the solemn ceremony of washing the white lions before April 1st. The event was scheduled for 11 o'clock and was to take place in the Tower. The curious townspeople came at the appointed time to the appointed place. Imagine how upset everyone was when they were told it was just a prank.

3. One of the leading newspapers in England, by April 1, published an advertisement for a round the world trip, which cost only two hundred pounds. The message of a well-known commentator who was engaged in the propaganda of Italian spaghetti looked very truthful. He claimed that this product grows, right in the trees. The British are a little limited on this day. You can only joke until 12 noon. The most outstanding draw of the past century (1957) belongs to the BBC.

But those who do not believe in practical jokes and do not succumb to deceptions - razini. And the second day is called the day of the tail. The Scots are busy putting an interesting little thing for their friends - a rubber bag, which, at the moment of pressure, begins to make not very pleasant sounds.
