A new book about the history of Catholicism in Ireland has been released, and it is being hailed as a “tremendous contribution to the study of Irish Catholicism”.
Catholicity for dummkis has been published by the publisher, Dermakist Press, and is aimed at a wider audience.
It is not the first book to examine the history and doctrine of Catholicism and its role in Irish life.
It is also the first to examine its origins, which date back to the mid-17th century.
The book will be published by Dublin’s St Mary’s Catholic Church, and will be available to purchase at the Irish Bookshop from Monday.
It was originally published in the Irish Catholic Monthly, a monthly magazine published by St Mary Magdalene College in Dublin, which has since closed.
It also includes a collection of essays by historians, historians and laypeople.
Irish author and scholar of Catholic history, Dr Robert Sánchez, said it was an important contribution to Irish history.
“Catholics have had a history of catholicity.
It’s one of the most significant and distinctive religious movements in the history that we have in the world,” he said.”
This book is very important for all those interested in that history.”
Dr Sánachez said the book was an attempt to answer the question of why Catholicism was such a strong part of Irish culture.
“What’s fascinating is that it is the history, and the identity, of a religion that has always been strong in Ireland and that has continued to grow and change over the centuries,” he added.
“The catholic tradition, the catholic church, the history has always had a strong, abiding presence in Ireland.”
The book is a historical overview of the development of the Catholic Church in Ireland.
It comes just a few weeks after a book by historian of religion, Paul Butler, published by Trinity College Dublin and Trinity University Press, argued that the Church in the 17th century was a reflection of the political and social conditions of the time.
“When you look at the development in Irish society, there’s no doubt that catholic churches were being built in the period of the Irish Wars of Independence,” he wrote.
“At the same time, there was an increasing number of immigrants coming from the Americas, the Middle East and elsewhere, and they began to assimilate to Irish society.”
Dr Butler wrote that the growth of Catholicism, as a religious movement, was the result of “a struggle for religious freedom, and a struggle for political power”.
“It was a religious and political struggle that resulted in the emergence of a Catholic church that has endured in Irish and world history,” he concluded.
“As the Church grew, it became a more significant and influential force in Irish political life.”
