Noel Muscat OFM

The scholarly account of the life of Luke Wadding by Fr. Francis Harold, forms the introduction to his prestigious and voluminous Annales Minorum, of which he wrote the first 8 volumes.[i] Luke Wadding was born on 16th October 1588 at Waterford, a town on the south coast of Ireland, looking over the Celtic Sea and St. George’s Channel. His parents, Walter and Anastasia Lombard, named him Luke, in memory of the evangelist St. Luke, since he was born close to his feast day, 18th October.
