Summary
"This book is a study of Anglican culture in Ireland from 1641 to the end of the eighteenth century, approached through a literary analysis of some of the most important texts written in the period. It argues that a Gothic aesthetic infiltrated that culture as the most powerful way to express the peculiarities of Anglicans' hybrid identity. It also argues that the Irish Gothic is best understood as a theological genre." "This book helps to provide insights into modern Irish culture, and to restore religion to its proper position as crucial to Irish Studies. Moreover it reclaims some of the most important texts for understanding Anglican Ireland, texts that have been ignored or marginalized since the middle of the nineteenth century."--BOOK JACKET
