on the role of the Catholic Church, mass campaigns of evangelisation and the educational system in the eighteenth, nineteenth and early twentieth centuries show clear evidence of the suppression of African and Malagasy culture and religion.10 The Church was one of the first institutions to come forward with an apology after the Commission recommended that various institutions present an official apology. In 2012, the Church has in fact been at the forefront of public demands to implement the recommendations of the TJC report. Perceptions of slavery and indenture

work of remaking Britain and evangelising it into Christian virtue; that it was an enterprise involving all the constituencies glaringly missing from the realm of Old Corruption, such as women, the provinces and new industrial towns, all this meant, I think, both at the time and two hundred years later, that it was possible to celebrate the event as an act of national rebirth; as a restoration, if you like, of a long vanished Christian order. In 1807, the Act was supposed to have laid the foundations for an empire that, freed from the taint of blood money, would

He opines that people’s faith has withstood the turmoil within and without the Church and argues that there are signs of the kind of renewal that was recommended by some of the documents of Vatican II. Detecting these signs is important in revealing the newly opened-​up possibilities (and risks) for a more humble church that seeks to fulfil its God-​given mission to bring joy to the world of today. The re-​evangelising of Ireland will not happen easily: it requires placing more emphasis on the beauty of lived Christianity and, by

’. On his account, domination of the education sector has also become bad for the Church and is ‘no longer tenable today’. The Catholic ethos of many schools has become watered down, and too much religious education is just going through the motions, meaning Ireland’s ‘young people are among the most catechised in Europe but among the least evangelised’ (Martin 2010). A more open and pluralistic education system can liberate Church-​run schools to be more authentically and distinctively Catholic, even if this means a reduction in their number, which some Church

of interest to psychiatrists, the grouping and understanding of these attributes are relevant to evangelisers lest they assume that those who say they are spiritual are automatically focused on a monotheistic deity. Many, if not most, may not have any interest in a sacred religious core and may instead have appropriated a privatised vision. Where are we now and where do we go from here? The public at large continue to engage in varying degrees in activities related to our faith that include children receiving the sacraments, generativity, a desire to have our

A third grouping of lodges changed its mind over the Agreement, moving from opposition to support by autumn 1911. Only a fourth group of radical lodges adopted a more consistent approach: striking in 1910, rejecting the three-shift system and attacking the agents for agreeing to it without lodge consent (see Chapter 3). The minimum wage, re-energised and evangelised by the South Wales miners in summer 1911, offered the Durham ILP a promising way of galvanising a mass rank

The final part, ‘Corporate identities’, begins in Chapter 6 with the development of a congregation’s corporate identity which brought together a disparate group of women under the banner of religious life. Chapter 7 looks specifically at class and ethnicity and the women who entered religious life. The entry of a diverse group of women into simple-vowed congregations had many implications for the
