This book traces the origins of Christianity and its spread through the Roman Empire: the introduction of Christianity into Ireland and the establishment of the primacy of Armagh: the conversion of the Dublin Vikings to Christianity: Papal bureaucracy in the medieval period: the causes of the reformation of the Irish church in the twelfth century: an overview of the mendicant orders in Ireland in the late medieval period; The Reformation period and the Counter-Reformation which ensued: the Ascendancy and the Penal laws; theological and ecclesiastical developments of the nineteenth century: and the Irish churches in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. No single volume can claim to be a definitive history of two thousand years of Christianity, but this collection of essays provides an accessible introduction to the topic from an Irish perspective.
