those who did not, although the line between them was not always clear. British geopolitical interest in the decaying Ottoman Empire continued to provide reassuring portents for ‘Christian Zionists’ right up until the First World War, but it also attracted scriptural and quasi-scriptural language from those who did not believe in the predictive potency of Scripture. 48 This division was further problematised by a growing ambivalence at mid-century about the part Britain was destined to play in global evangelisation

Project’ involved inviting other religious groups to ‘evangelise’ them, which meant visits to Muslim, Quaker, atheist, Jewish, Hindu, Russian Orthodox, Free Presbyterian and Scientologist groups in Belfast. All of these activities represent a very self-conscious crossing of political and religious boundaries, driven by the conviction that they can really learn something worthwhile

Second, antinatalism does not seek to evangelise; its ultimate purpose is not to transform or radicalise non-believers. Antinatalism, for Ligotti, is a thought experiment that reflects his own beliefs about the pointlessness of human existence and, as he has made clear on various occasions, is a proposition he does not think stands any chance of catching on, given that it goes against everything that has kept the fabric of human life alive for thousands of years. Antinatalism is more than a simple opinion, however, for ‘while no one can prove that there is any

that is highlighted by Callum Brown: The great invention of evangelicalism was the voluntary organisation. It turned the elite organisation of eighteenth-century charity into the backbone of urban-industrial society, providing spiritual, educational, recreational, evangelising and moralising opportunities for the whole population … The voluntary organisation took over the regulation of the people's habits from the established-church parish-state of the early modern period

If Catholics have ceased to be ‘outlandish’, the same cannot be said of their outland: Europe. By the nineteenth century, the English view of Europe as a cultural and religious outland was well-established. Europe was habitually portrayed as a dark, dangerous continent that was either to be avoided or evangelised. After the defeat of Napoleon in 1815, it became possible again to tour Europe. This was a great

Although the profile of those working with CYC has changed significantly, its ethos remains the same, as stated in a 2004 CYC publication: ‘For many years students at Holy Cross, Clonliffe and priests in parishes were generous and effective youth ministers. The decline in the number of priests and the reduction in parish staff, places a responsibility on lay people to play an active and leading role in the evangelisation of young people’ (Ni Chionnaith, 2004: 22). The influence of Catholic religious organisations in this area was not confined to

evangelisation could become inter-­changeable in such work. The Probation of Offenders Act 1907 outlined the duties of the probation officer ‘to advise, assist and befriend’ the young person. Similarly, the Legion of Mary’s handbook (1993: 243) notes, in relation to ‘works for the young’, that: Competent legionaries, once admitted to the home, will know how to make all the members of that family feel the radiation of their apostolate. A sincere interest in the children will usually make a favourable impression on the parents. This can be skilfully utilised to cultivate in them
