Download and read online The Church of Ireland in Victorian Dublin in PDF and EPUB The Church of Ireland has received a considerable amount of attention recently from nineteenth-century historians but few have looked at it from the perspective of the local community, as has been the case with recent work by historians in Britain. This study of the church in Victorian Dublin begins with a survey of the development of the parishes and the building of churches. It examines the devotional life and pastoral concerns of the laity and the clergy and their changing roles. An analysis of churchgoing trends is included and comparison is made with trends in England and Scotland. The study includes developments in church architecture, the layout of church buildings and the content of church services. This is set in the context of the demographic changes and the overall decline in the church's population in Dublin. While the study addresses the religious rivalry which existed between Catholics and Protestants, it also includes consideration of the laity's role in the management of the day-to-day life of the local church community. The social and educational backgrounds of the clergy are discussed and an account is given of their training and the changing process by which they were appointed to parishes. The study suggests that trends in the Church of Ireland in Dublin at the time were not dissimilar to the Church of England and both churches experienced a religious boom in the period. However, disestablishment in 1870 and the church's minority status gave the Church of Ireland a distinctive social and religious flavour.

Download and read online Peg Plunkett in PDF and EPUB 'Of picking, washing and cleaning my pretty little toes, which he took great delight in, and in which pleasurable, innocent, and inoffensive pastime he as often spent hours; 'twas the greatest gratification to him on earth, nor did he (said she) indulge in any other in all the time we spent together, he never was even rude enough to give me a kiss.' So emerged the first exposé of foot fetishism in the eighteenth century. Revelations and racy anecdotes about the lives of the rich and famous of Dublin and London abound within Peg Plunkett: Memoirs of a Whore. From a violent domestic background, Peg blitzed her way through balls and masquerades creating scandals and gossip wherever she went, leaving dukes, barristers and lieutenants stranded in her wake. She was the first madame ever to write her memoirs, thereby setting the template for the whore's memoir. She wrote not merely to reveal herself but to expose the shoddy behaviour of others and her account of her life. In Peg Plunkett: Memoirs of a Whore, Julie Peakman brings her subject and the world through which she moved to glorious, bawdy life.
