Hibernian Lecture: "The Struggle for Ireland's Soul: Catholics under the Penal Laws"

-

Location: Geddes Hall, Andrews Auditorium, Lower Level

Mcbride 600w

Ian McBride is Foster Professor of Irish History at Hertford College, University of Oxford. His research has focused on 18th-century Ireland as well as the role of historians in making sense of the Northern Ireland conflict.

He has received a Leverhulme Major Research Award to produce a study of Catholic Ireland under the penal laws.

McBride plans to write a book addressing how the 18th-century penal code was implemented and how it reshaped Catholic Ireland. Much of the research will be carried out in Rome, where a number of exceptionally rich archives have yet to be properly exploited.…
