Religion in Greater Ireland considers the impact of religion on the cultural empires created by the Irish overseas in the long nineteenth century. It includes chapters covering Irish experience in India, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa, Newfoundland and Australia. The religious “Greater Ireland” was a distinctly transnational phenomenon, with personnel, institutions, and networks that crossed the British Empire and the United States and helped form recognizably Irish and British colonial cultures. “Religion and Greater Ireland” examines this Irish spiritual empire in all its aspects, national and transnational, ecclesiastical, political, educational and social, and with reference to all the Irish denominations in the British Empire and United States from 1788-1922.
