confused response to the allegorical, cf. Theodore Beza, The other parte of Christian Questions and Answeares, which is concerning the Sacraments, trans. John Field (London: Thomas Woodcocke, 1580). Having stressed the sacraments as physical signs with verbal meanings, Beza accuses those who believed that Christ inhered in the elements of ‘that bread worshippe, from whence at the length Sathan cast men headlong to consubstantiation’ (question 244). I have used the Bodleian Library copy of Beza’s text, available through Early English Books Online. MUP_Walls_Final.indd 10

‘replaced in its functions the previously dominant ideological State apparatus, the Church’ (Althusser 2001: 154). By making marriage central to the Gemeinschaft of Ireland, such ideological conformity was ensured from the beginning of the State. Marriage in Ireland was largely sacramental, as already noted, but it was also generative of other sacraments for the children of such marriages. Therefore, marriage engendered the baptism of the child, the sacrament of penance, followed by that of first communion and then later confirmation. Ideally, the children would then

appears in the accounts of July 1665 administering the sacrament to Anne and her family at Brougham Castle. 12 The Painted Chamber was on the second floor of Brougham Castle and connected with Anne’s chamber through a small passage. In the 1660s she used the Painted Chamber for Wednesday and Sunday prayers. Lower-status individuals ate their meals in the Great Hall below. 13 These are Anne’s tenants and farmers. They appear to be closely connected with each other. They appear often in Anne’s accounts from 1669 to 1675. 14 The Book of Common Prayer (London, 1662

And in this case the sacrament should be bestowed on them if there be fear of danger otherwise it is better to wait until the time when they are sane, so that they may receive the sacrament more devoutly. But if during the interval of lucidity they manifest no desire to receive Baptism, they should not be baptized while in a state of insanity. Lastly there are others who, though not altogether sane

This ritualized worship greatly revolved around the communal administering of the sacraments, especially the Lord’s Supper. As Tyacke has written: ‘Building on the Prayer Book, English Arminians [i.e. Laudians] elaborated a scenic 194 Elizabeth Isham’s religion

In a letter from Calvin to Knox in 1559 he implored the Scots not to limit baptism only to the children of the godly. Knox had been hesitant to baptise children of the ungodly and excommunicates; however, Calvin advised him that the blessing of God’s covenant promises ‘is extended to a
