New Book by Patrick Tobin (OP 1960)


The Gong Tormented Sea, the Norman Kingdom of Sicily and the Byzantine Empire

Patrick Tobin (OP 1960) who taught History at St Benedict’s from 1963 to 1971 has completed a book which he started whilst he was teaching at the school; it will be published on 20th May 2020 by the Escourt Press, Winchester.

It is very much a St Benedict’s Project. Professor Christopher Mulvey (OP 1960) has provided invaluable help towards publication and Edward Fennell (OP 1968), a pupil of Patrick’s in the 1960s, has also participated actively. There will be many other Old Priorians with memories of Patrick’s teaching who might now be interested in this outcome.
