Cardinal Paul Cullen and His World

Edited by: Albert McDonnell, Dáire Keogh

From the mid-19th century, the authority of Cardinal Paul Cullen (1803-1878) was ubiquitous within Irish society and the English-speaking world. Contemporaries spoke of the 'Cullenization of Irish society;' a Times obituary celebrated him as 'an agent of great change,' while a critical James Joyce lampooned the cardinal as the 'apple of God's eye.' This book brings together 30 scholars who offer a broad perspective on Cardinal Cullen and his age. *** "...full of valuable information and analysis, promising further understanding not only of Cullen but also of the complex Irish transformation from a world of confessional states into one of nation-states." - Catholic Historical Review, Vol. 99, No. 1, January 2013~
