drawn largely on Lacanian concepts and methods. Lacanian discourse has a complex and multiply determined relationship with Catholicism, and – third and last, but emphatically not least, in my short list of common approaches – Bresson has the reputation of being the cinema’s greatest Catholic director (doubtless leaving Dreyer and Bergman to fight it out for the Protestant crown). For Louis Malle writing on Pickpocket , ‘[p

Catholicism may prevent the soul from leaving the dead body for purgatory, and that this provides the ground from which ‘bone-trapped’, restless spirits can terrorise the living. The story of Beltrán Leyva’s corpse In the days after the killing of Beltrán Leyva, images of his corpse were broadcast in the Mexican and world media. The blood-covered corpse was shown with bullet holes and a disfigured arm. It was, moreover, stripped naked and covered with pesos and dollar bills soaked in his blood. On his stomach, somebody had placed several religious amulets and a paper slip

Pearse’s ideas about education were ignored to why Ireland has been recently so open to large-scale immigration, from the case for isolationism in support of de-colonisation to how and why Ireland came to be defined as an open economy. What is being examined are shifting representations of nation-building goals set out in seminal periodicals, books and government reports. For the most part the focus is on mainstream vantage points and critiques of these. Some of the early chapters examine the influence of Catholicism and the common cause it found with cultural

, and the experimental and observational sciences. In 1912 Catholic intentions hardly needed to be advertised. In time the subtitle became shortened to ‘An Irish Quarterly Review’ with the accompanying explanation of the remit of Studies: ‘It examines Irish social, political, cultural and economic issues in the light of Christian values and explores the Irish dimension in literature, history, philosophy and religion.’ In the pages of Studies the polarised conflict between Catholicism and liberalism claimed by some accounts of Irish modernisation break down. The Irish

important? First, it promotes a better understanding of the changing role of religion in modern society in the post-war twentieth century by expanding our understanding of how religious bodies interacted with society. Despite the decline of religious belief in the Global North, religion remains inescapably relevant, as any review of recent newspaper headlines demonstrates. Religion, in many of the social and cultural histories of Britain in the 1960s, if addressed at all, has often been portrayed as a stagnant, obstructionist force. This research displays Catholicism as a

recruited through home networks. In the absence of a formal Irish colonial project, Irish planters on Montserrat and to a lesser extent on St. Kitts ambitiously exploited the financial opportunities available in the Leeward Islands while accommodating their Catholicism to superficial compliance with Anglicanism. Certainly, the story of the Irish in the Early Modern Caribbean was not exclusively one of successful adaptation on the part of an elite of planters and merchants. The possibility of depositing troublesome Irish elements

such an exercise were feasible, it is far from clear that the case would be proved by superiority of numbers. Perhaps, for example, it is true that discontent, over and above a certain level, is more potent than content – especially when given strong leadership from above. Or perhaps we could posit that those who were discontented with medieval Catholicism, however ‘wrong’ they may have been, were in some way more influential than those who were happy – they were the intellectuals, the aspiring gentry and bureaucrats, the reforming spirits and, by the very nature of

individual and community, of holding together the fragile shell. It is a metaphor for survival. The novels For all the nuances and diversions of the first five novels, these books are unified by both location, common characters, ‘the intersection of Catholicism and the shamanistic religion of the Ojibwe’ (Chapman 2007: 149), irony, and other elements to be explicated here that are explored to varying depths in each book. That location, a fictional ‘non-space’ resembling an amalgamation of several reservations and the

Polemic and ideology in Heylyn’s 1630s writings

official spokesman for the Laudian movement, what broader ideology did he present in his works? This chapter is intended to scrutinize the dominant themes in his published works of this decade, relating in particular to the nature of the English Reformation, puritanism, Roman Catholicism, and the foreign Reformed churches. We will seek in part to determine whether these reveal a unified and consistent vision, or whether tensions and ambiguities can be observed. Given that the best picture that historians now have of Laudianism is one that has consciously synthesized a
