*Michael Logue and the Catholic Church in Ireland, 1879-1925* provides a review and consideration of the role of the Catholic Church in Ireland in the intense political and social changes after 1879 through a major figure in Irish history, Michael Logue. Despite being a figure of pivotal historical importance in Ireland no substantial study of Michael Logue (1840-1924) has previously been undertaken. Through the medium of Logue, Privilege examines the role of the Catholic Church in the intense political and social changes in Ireland after 1879. Exploring previously under-researched areas, like the clash between science and faith, university education and state-building, the book significantly contributes to our understanding of the relationship between the Church and the state in modern Ireland. This book also sets out to redress any historical misunderstanding of Michael Logue and provides a fresh perspective on existing interpretations of the role of the Church and on areas of historical debate in this period.
