Most widely held works by E. A Thompson
Who was Saint Patrick? by E. A Thompson( Book )

18 editions published between 1985 and 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Everyone knows of St. Patrick, but what do we know about him? Simply that it was he who 'converted the Irish to Christianity'. The strange fact is that for two hundred years or so after his death, although his name was remembered with respect, everything else about him was forgotten." "E. A. Thompson pieces together the story of his life, drawing his evidence from the only real clues that exist, Patrick's own writings, not from the later Lives. He reveals him as coming from a well-to-do nominally Christian family in Britain, being captured by Irish raiders and forced into slavery in Co Mayo, converting to a most earnest Christianity, and eventually escaping from Ireland to the fulfilment of his calling. As a bishop, he is shown to have been a man of profound originality, and his writings - his Confession and his Letter to Coroticus - further display his character. It is no surprise that a host of legends became attached to his name, and the biography is completed with a look at some of those early legends."--Jacket

Romans and barbarians : the decline of the western empire by E. A Thompson( Book )

19 editions published between 1981 and 2002 in English and held by 881 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Examines the fall of the Roman Empire in the West from the barbarian perspective and experience. Standard interpretations of the decline of the Roman Empire in the West view the barbarian invaders as destroyers. Thompson, however, argues that the relationship between the invaders and the invaded was far more complex than the common interpretation would suggest

Development of Integrase-Like Catalytic Antibodies for Breast Cancer( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project aims to develop catalytic antibodies that will allow efficient DNA transfer by promoting DNA site-specific recombination. Such antibodies may provide a very powerful means to manipulate DNA transfer at defined sequences with obvious implications for gene therapy of breast cancer. In order to engineer enzymes that catalyze the recombination, we immunized mice with a synthetic DNA Holiday structure and screened over 5,000 hybridomas. We had candidate clones that seemed to either resolve or bind to the structure in primary screenings. Unfortunately we have not been able to isolate clones that possess the properties after expansion and purification. For constructing fab expression library we encountered difficulties in amplifying Fab cDNA from immunized mouse splenic mRNA. We have made a few primary libraries. We are in the beginning of screening the libraries for the Fabs that resolve the structure. This is a very technical and labor challenging project. I feel that our resources are limited to successfully complete the project. Successful completion of this project will provide a new technology of DNA transfer for both biomedical research and therapeutic purposes
