of the era but, as they were ecclesiastically affiliated, also church leaders’ attempt to utilize, yet control, lay enthusiasm. Decrees emanating from reform councils held in 1059 by Pope Nicholas II, and in 1063 by Pope Alexander II, codified the establishment of these semi-religious orders but stipulated that members were required to lead apostolic lives of chastity and service and follow a set rule. 41 Still, these canons were not attached in the same way as the traditional monastic orders to the institutional church. Founded by urban lay men, they were thus

analysis. She suggests that the Irish religious market has evolved from being monopolistic 14 Eamon Maher and Eugene O’Brien to becoming more pluralist, and she goes on to explore the nature of today’s religious market in Ireland from the perspective of the Celtic Tiger values as echoed by religious market theories and by the post-­ secularization theory. Finally, Brendan Geary looks at how assumptions about the Catholic Church have been shattered by the reports of child sexual abuse and their subsequent cover-­ups, and he examines how the institutional Church has

Chapter 2, but in his case he directly challenges some aspects of the image of early medieval Ireland as a land of saints and scholars. That particular idea, cherished by generations of Catholics in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries as a totem of a holy and learned tradition, is now open to serious question. What can be said of the early medieval period is that Ireland did indeed contribute enormously to the development of European civilisation. However, the institutional church far from being of positive benefit to early Christian Ireland was by turns domineering

‘good name’ of the Church and too little concern for victims.65 The winter 2005 issue contained several articles criticising responses by the institutional Church to the scandal of abuse. A 2010 essay, ‘No Cheap Grace’ by Seamus Murphy SJ, published in response to the Ryan and Murphy reports on child sexual abuse, bluntly started with ‘three simple facts’: a large number of priests had sexually assaulted children during the last forty FANNING 9781784993221 PRINT.indd 71 19/01/2016 13:25 72 Irish adventures in nation-building years; their superiors made no serious

which to give voice and to spread the good news. By revealing the power of love to the world the artist performs the service of the priest. Whereas the institutional church is ministered by ‘priested peasant[s] . . . who [are] but schooled in the discharging of a formal rite . . . [the secular artist would be] . . . a priest of eternal imagination, transmuting the daily bread of experience into the radiant body of everliving life’ (Joyce, 2003: 240). That artist/priest carries out his mission in Ulysses by faithfully recording epiphanies of philia in the networks of

Moral regimes are related to reproductive governance, which is based on the mechanisms through which different historical configurations of actors – such as state institutions, churches, donor agencies, and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) – use legislative controls, economic inducements, moral injunctions, direct coercion, and ethical incitements to produce

In brief: the dwarf ’s eventual support of Una represents the broadly visible ‘services’ through which the visible institutional Church (or churches) may support, and even (allegorically) embody the functions of the invisible Church.48 These adiaphora include the forms and material ‘ornaments’ of worship, which 47 Lancelot Andrewes, Sermons of the Nativity and of Repentance and Fasting: Ninety-Six Sermons, 2 vols (Oxford: John Henry Parker, 1861), I, 283 (italics mine).

Ireland and Irish Catholicism by dethroning the Church, Taylor’s framework is also sensitive to modernity’s ‘dangers’ and Catholicism’s capacity to respond. For Taylor, the Church does not disappear but, freed from alliances with political and social power, takes on a new character. The Irish Church is well positioned to do this since, for all the changes it has faced, it does retain an often-​overlooked vibrancy. While there has been a collapse of faith in the institutional Church and its hierarchy, many local nuns, priests, brothers and lay ministers continue to find

). This is in spite of the very public failures of the institutional Church over the past few decades. Irish Catholics have historically demonstrated the ability to act independently of the institution when they see fit. Equally, in spite of what many have seen as a scandalous betrayal of ideals by the Church authorities in recent decades, there is much evidence that Catholics at parish level remain loyal to their local clergy. At a time when many might apply the term ‘post-​Catholic’ to Irish society, the Church and its clergy can take some comfort from the fact that
