about this item

This book brings together leading Irish historians who examine how the history of the Church of Ireland has been written in the 500 years since the Reformation. It traces the emergence of a distinctly Protestant narrative, shaped by the belief that the Church of Ireland was the true descendant of St Patrick, and shows how this endured down to the twentieth century, before being challenged by the development of a more secular and professional approach to the writing of history. Contributors: Alan Ford (U Nottingham), Mark Empey (NUIG), Toby Barnard (formerly Hertford College, U Oxford), Sean Farrell (Northern Illinois U), Jamie Blake Knox (TCD), Daibhi O Croinin (NUIG), Tom O'Loughlin (U Nottingham), James Golden (formerly Hertford College, U Oxford), Ruairi Cullen (QUB), Miriam Moffitt (SPCM), Ian D'Alton (Sidney Sussex College, U Cambridge), James Murray (Technological Higher Education Association), Nicholas Canny (NUIG), Karl Bottigheimer (SUNY), Steven Ellis (NUIG), David Hayton (QUB).
