By John Gibney
Was the 1641 uprising a justified reaction to dispossession and repression? Or used to be it an unprovoked try out at sectarian genocide? John Gibney comprehensively examines 3 centuries of this debate. The fight to set up and interpret the evidence of the earlier used to be additionally a fight over the current: if Protestants were slaughtered by means of vicious Catholics, this supplied a great justification for retaining Protestant privilege. If, nonetheless, Protestant propaganda had inflated a number of deaths right into a immense and brutal “massacre,” this justification was once groundless.
Gibney exhibits how politicians, historians, and polemicists have represented (and misrepresented) 1641 over the centuries, creating a sectarian realizing of Irish historical past the dominant paradigm within the recognition of the Irish Protestant and Catholic groups alike.
