Irish women and the creation of modern Catholicism, 1850DS1950

First Edition

Cara Delay

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Timely study given the high level of public interest in women and Catholicism provoked by the May 2018 abortion referendum, scandals surrounding clerical abuse and the Magdalene Asylums
  • Analyses previously overlooked archival sources from across Ireland, folklore narratives and women's life-writings
  • Will appeal to readers in both Ireland and the US, where public interest in the history of Catholicism and women's roles in Catholicism is high
  • Provides the only historical analysis of lay women's roles in the making of modern Irish Catholicism
