This chapter highlights Logue's journey through the university campaign. The issue of university education in Ireland was a constant source of grievance for the bishops. The university system in Ireland was at the center of a network of proselytism and indifferentism which the hierarchy had come to regard as characteristic of the Protestant constitution in Ireland. The Roman Catholic Church demanded the same rights and recognition that the state extended to Protestants in terms of state funded, denominational university education. The demand for national justice, however, masked other concerns and preoccupations. The challenges to traditional faith thrown up by the intellectual revolution and the advent of Darwinism made a truly Catholic university not only desirable, but also essential. Furthermore, Logue's determination to have a university acceptable to Rome ultimately ensured the success of the campaign. Logue trusted Walsh to deliver an institution that would not only meet the requirements of Rome but also be of sufficient prestige to redress Catholic grievances on the status of Trinity College. This cooperation eased whatever early tension existed in the relationship between the two men, though the partnership between Armagh and Dublin sometimes dismayed others within the episcopate.
