British and Irish Religious Orders in Europe, 1560–1800

Conventuals, Mendicants and Monastics in Motion

Edited by CORMAC BEGADON and JAMES E KELLY

This collection aims to explore new perspectives on the British and Irish conventual, mendicant and monastic movements in mainland Europe and rediscover their roles and wider impact within early modern European Catholicism. It examines the ways in which British and Irish conventuals and monastics, both men and women, engaged with the seismic religious and philosophical developments of the early modern period, such as the Catholic Reformation and the Enlightenment in mainland Europe, as well as important political developments at ‘home’, exploring the connections between centres and peripheries.

Building on recent movements within the field to ‘decentralise’ the Catholic Reformation and recognize the international nature of Catholicism, the volume aims to bring the islands’ experience in line with work on their European confreres and the broader global network of the religious orders.
