traditional moral teachings and the reality and diversity of social mores in any given society on an individual’s moral compass and sense of moral coherence. 195 S chools, ethos and inclusion 195 At the same time, we have already alluded to the fact that it is the cultural, historically charged dimension of Irish Catholicism that has been influential in the perpetuation of the system rather than a religious discourse, strictly speaking. Members of the Irish Catholic Church may be said to be themselves influenced by this cultural, historical (rather than strictly

Church polity and politics in the British Atlantic world, c. 1635–66

episcopalian theorists such as Herbert Thorndike, Jeremy Taylor and Henry Hammond, while discussed in this volume by Benjamin Guyer, are somewhat underrepresented in the historical literature, with J.W. Packer’s 1969 monograph The transformation of Anglicanism remaining a key survey of this field.10 Also missing from this volume are debates on polity within British and Irish catholicism during the period. This omission, together with that of Ireland, was due to not being able to find a scholar to write a chapter for this collection at the time of commissioning the chapters

1607 and took holy orders in 1609. He died quite suddenly in November 1614 at St Anthony’s College, Louvain where he had risen to the rank of guardian. Three years before his death, he published a small Catechism at Antwerp, which laid out in more simple Irish the basic tenets of the Catholic faith as outlined at the Council of Trent. 42 Copied again and again into manuscripts in the north and south of Ireland, one could argue that it formed the catechetical basis of Irish Catholicism down to the late nineteenth century. Ó hEodhasa simplified the discourse, and

Liverpool and its Scouse inhabitants were somehow different from a typical vision of northern working-class existence, not better or worse, merely ‘different’. Belchem’s research, while dealing with an earlier period than that of this study, develops further convincing arguments that it was the Irish diaspora following the mid-nineteenth-century famine which gave Liverpool its unique character and its sense of ‘us versus the rest’ parochialism. He posits that it was the overwhelming shadow of Irish Catholicism that made Liverpool different from Britain’s other maritime

Turning towards a radiant ideal

sterile mimetic repetition in a dead church. But Joyce’s apostasy does not throw the divine child out with the bathwater of Irish Catholicism. Instead, the Portrait is an account of a spiritual transformation wherein the artist, awakened by eros, becomes a secular priest of philia and agape, whose true vocation is to grasp and express transcendent divinity, as it is manifest in the immanent order of society and everyday life. A Portrait of the Artist exemplifies the conversion experience in terms of the structure of a rite de passage. It begins when the Director of the

’, ‘Heavenly’, ‘God Knows’, ‘Lord Knows’ and ‘Oh God’. The shaming and guilt-inducing processes associated with mid-twentieth-century (Irish) Catholicism are in evidence in many songs, especially in reference to the body and sexual expression, and sexual incapacity in particular. The loss of childhood innocence in the face of sin and corruption is a core theme on the band’s first album. Furthermore, there are abundant references in Morrissey’s lyrics to the Devil, to Hell, to Heaven, to evil, to the sacred, to the unholy, to sin, to loss of faith, to devotion, to lies and to

1949.61 War shattered Berlin also became a focus for Irish aid even before the commencement of the Berlin blockade.62 Irish society exhibited fervent anti-​communist, pro-​American and pro-​Western feelings. Anti-​communism was a deep-​seated feature of Irish Catholicism and the Soviet Union’s veto of the Ireland’s application to join the UN in 1946 gave most Irish citizens another reason for hostility towards Moscow. Moscow’s actions kept Ireland waiting in the antechamber in New York for a further nine years. The circumstances of the Soviet Union’s actions on this

Tiger, true to Wilde’s definition of the cynic as ‘one who knows the price of everything, but the value of nothing’, Walsh says: ‘I’m not interested in what people think. I just do what I do and it’s very successful.’21 The Irish apocalypse and intimations of redemption In the premodern cosmology of traditional Irish Catholicism, the interior that matters is the interior of the soul. In modern Irish consumerism, it is the interior of the house. Walter Benjamin says, ‘The bourgeois interior is a dialectical image in which the reality of industrial capitalism is

century the missionary magazines reflected nationalist sentiments in proclaiming the emergence of a ‘golden age of Irish civilisation’. National pride and religiosity were constructed in relation to each other.31 The extension of Ireland’s spiritual glory in the missions was linked to the emergence of a Catholic Irish nation at home: The imaginative link between Irish freedom and Irish Catholicism had already been forged by nationalists such as Pearse and Plunkett. But the advocates of the missionary movement gave it a new dimension by extending it to include those
