Review Quotes
A highly valuable study ... brings the study of Ireland in the 1640s to a new level of sophistication.
... a very considerable achievement and a major advance on previous scholarship.
Dr Tadhg Ó hAnnracháin is to be commended not only for his choice of subject but for his persistence in seeking to extract meaning on the Counter Reformation in Ireland from most unpromising sources ... The outcome from Ó hAnnracháin's investigation is an original and, in several respects, a startling book.

"This work is part of the new British history, which emphasizes the interconnectedness of events all over the British Isles. It goes further to show significant connections with the continental Counter Reformation. Impressive research in major archives all over Europe, in many languages, supports O'Hannrachain's nuanced interpretations, which substantially advance our knowledge and understanding of that turbulent period and connect it convincingly with the European context. Historians and graduate students will welcome and profit greatly from this well-researched and well-written work."-- HISTORY: Reviews of New Books

A pivotal moment in Irish history, the evolution of the Counter-Reformation church--with the papal nuncio GianBattista Rinuccini at the heart of the turbulent events of the 1640s--formed an important prologue to the Cromwellian conquest. This book offers a scholarly reappraisal of the man and his role in shaping the religion and history of Ireland.
Long Description
The success of the Irish Counter-Reformation was a crucial development in the history of the island and subsequently a vital component in the troubled relationship between Ireland and Britain. For centuries the politics of the archipelago have been affected by conflicts whose deepest roots are located in the religious changes of the seventeenth century. This book offers a scholarly and dramatic reappraisal of a central episode in the extension of Catholic reform to the island, thepapal nunciature of GianBattista Rinuccini. Tadhg Ó hAnnracháin situates Rinuccini's mission in its wider European context, and provides an entirely new perspective, not only on the man at the heart of events during the turbulent 1640s, but also on the seventeenth-century penetration of Catholicreform into Ireland and on the Irish theatre of the Wars of the Three Kingdoms.
