Abstract

The purpose of this research is to translate the 12th century Latin text Tractatus de Purgatorio Sancti Patricii ("The Treatise on St. Patrick's Purgatory") and analyze the eschatological elements present in the text by comparing them to those found in works or excerpts of similar nature belonging mainly to the Early and High Middle Ages. Among these are the Long Latin version of the Visio Pauli ("The Vision of Paul") edited by Hilhorst and Silverstein (1997), the accounts of life after death described in chapter XXXVI, Book IV, of Gregory the Great's Libri Dialogorum ("Dialogues"), as well as the visions of the knights Drythelm and Tnugdal, the first of these rendered by Bede in chapter XII, Book V, of his Ecclesiastical History of the English People (Historia Ecclesiastica Gentis Anglorum).
