about this item

Mierlo tries to cast light on Joyce's relationship with Catholicism and the Catholic Church by working with a broad but not unlimited contextual framework, considering his approach to a culture of Catholicism in Ireland about 1850-1939. This leaves out many important aspects of the discussion, she admits, such as medieval hagiography and the history of the Catholic Church in Ireland, but focuses on the period of Irish Catholic history that he knew best and drew from most in his work--a culture that was swept away by Vatican II in 1962-65.
