Podcast of 2016 Beckett Lecture

Prof. Robert Armstrong (TCD) spoke on ‘The Presbyterian Story: history, theology and community in Ulster, 1640-1714’ at PRONI on 9 June 2016. Permissions for reuse of this audio file should be made to Prof. Armstrong (ARMSTRRM@tcd.ie ).

The lecture explores the way in which Presbyterian historians in the later 17th and early 18th centuries constructed a historical narrative around the emergence of a distinct Irish Presbyterian identity in the first half of the 17th century (but with some reference back as far as St Patrick).

The lecture was accompanied by the launch of a new edition, published by UHF, of two of the historical texts discussed – Robert Armstrong et al (eds), Presbyterian History in Ireland: Two Seventeenth- Century Narratives.
