Overview

Anti-Catholicism forms part of the dynamics to Northern Ireland's conflict and is critical to the self-defining identity of certain Protestants.

Overview

Anti-Catholicism forms part of the dynamics to Northern Ireland's conflict and is critical to the self-defining identity of certain Protestants. However, anti-Catholicism is as much a sociological process as a theological dispute. It was given a Scriptural underpinning in the history of Protestant-Catholic relations in Ireland, and wider British-Irish relations, in order to reinforce social divisions between the religious communities and to offer a deterministic belief system to justify them. This book examines the socio-economic and political processes that have led to theology being used in social closure and stratification between the seventeenth century and the present day.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Illustrates from Irish history the use of anti-Catholicism as a resource in social stratification, and presents a sociological analysis of contemporary articulations of anti-Catholicism. The authors argue that even though the idea exists that there is a Scriptural basis to anti-Catholicism, the problem is largely a sociological one, and that both theology and sociology must be used to understand the conflict.
