St. Patrick on Wikipedia – Slate

I wrote a piece for Slate called “Why the Wikipedia page for St. Patrick is Surprisingly Good.” When I started doing research on St. Patrick’s page, I was pleasantly surprised to have the two top St. Patrick scholars tell me that the Wikipedia page was excellent. Writing the article also allowed me to learn more about St. Patrick as a human being.

You can read the full piece about St. Patrick on Wikipedia here. It remains one of my favorites.
