Excerpts from: A Letter to the Soldiers of Coroticus 2

translated by John Skinner

...Patricides, they are, yes and fratricides, no better than ravening wolves devouring God’s own people like a loaf of bread... ...Coroticus, who fears neither God nor the priests whom he has chosen and to whom he has given the highest divine power... ...My voice is raised in sorrow and mourning... ...We have been overwhelmed by the wickedness of unjust men, it is as if we had been made outsiders. They find it unacceptable that we are Irish but it says is it not true that you all have but one God? Why then have you, each one of you, abandoned your own neighbor?(20)
