Irish Covenanters - Politics and Society in the 19th Century
Tim Donachie has written a ground-breaking account of one of the mostsignificant Presbyterian denominations in the nineteenth-century trans-Atlantic world. This bookdescribes tensions within a theologically conservative movement as it responds to new opportunities in education, trade, politics and law. Dr. Donachie demonstrates that the Covenanters were much morecomplex – and interesting – than many historians have recognised.
