Summary
"This study shows that Agar was 'infinitely the first ecclesiastic' in late eighteenth-century Ireland. It argues that the political influence, which he derived from his family hindered as well as helped his ecclesiastical career. It demonstrates that, at critical moments, his political ability was of supreme importance to the Church, and that within the hierarchy he was under-rewarded and under-promoted in relation to his services. Finally, it suggests that, far from being the last of the bad old eighteenth-century churchmen, he was the archetype of the 'era of graceful reform' in the Church of Ireland."--BOOK JACKET
