Catholic Reformation in Ireland: The Mission of Rinuccini 1645-1649

by Tadhg Hannrachin, Tadhg O. Hannrachain
 

A pivotal moment in Irish history, the evolution of the Counter-Reformation church—with the papal nuncio GianBattista Rinuccini at the heart of the turbulent events of the 1640s—formed an important prologue to the Cromwellian conquest. This book offers a scholarly reappraisal of the man and his role in shaping the religion and history of Ireland.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This work is part of the new British history, which emphasizes the interconnectedness of events all over the British Isles. It goes further to show significant connections with the continental Counter Reformation. Impressive research in major archives all over Europe, in many languages, supports O'Hannrachain's nuanced interpretations, which substantially advance our knowledge and understanding of that turbulent period and connect it convincingly with the European context. Historians and graduate students will welcome and profit greatly from this well-researched and well-written work."— HISTORY: Reviews of New Books
