Choosing Religious Atrocities in Ireland

 
  6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Nowhere in Europe have the wars of religion lasted longer than in Ireland. At the heart of this are two rival sets of memories of atrocities: above all, Protestants recall the massacres of the 1641 rebellion, and Catholics recall the massacres perpetrated by Oliver Cromwell in 1649. 

As well as setting these competing narratives into their wider context, this lecture will ask why the partisan memorialisation of religious atrocity in Ireland has proved so exceptionally durable.

No reservations are required for this lecture. It will be run on a ‘first come, first served’ basis.
Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture 

Cost: Free of Charge
