History Hub


Connecting past and present

In a podcast for the History Hub.ie podcast series, Professor Elva Johnston (UCD) tries to separate the historical man Patrick from the mythical legend of Ireland’s patron saint.

Professor Johnston lectures on early medieval Ireland in the School of History at University College Dublin. Her research focuses on the histories of conversion, hagiography, literacy and sexuality. Her articles situate these within their broader international contexts.
