I've read a few articles on Saint Patrick, and it appears he was quite a phenomenal person.
Saint Patrick's Breastplate
Attributed to St Patrick, the poem known as The Deer's Cry or St Patrick's Breastplate tells the story is told of how the saint used a power called féth fíada to transform himself and his companion into wild deer so that they could escape ambush while on their way to preach at the Hill of Tara.
This royal hill in the Boyne Valley was the ancient capital of Ireland and, to the Druids, the sacred dwelling place of their gods.
Awaiting their arrival, and with every intention of attacking or imprisoning the two Christians, their Celtic adversaries saw only a deer with a fawn roaming across the fields. As a result of this power, the missionairies successfully reached the Hill without incident.
