Religion, society and politics in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century Ireland: essays presented to S.J. Connolly
D.W. Hayton & Andrew R. Holmes, editors
This collection of new work by established scholars explores a range of topics in the history of Ireland between the Williamite Revolution and the mid-nineteenth century, an era of massive social and political change. The authors consider political and literary responses to the development of Ireland's 'confessional state', the origins of protest movements, the impact of evangelical religion, the expansion of education and shifts in gender relations.
D.W. Hayton is emeritus professor of history at Queen's University Belfast and visiting professor in the School of English & History, University of Ulster. Andrew R. Holmes is lecturer in modern Irish history at Queen's University Belfast.
