The Fitzgerald dynasty of Kildare , who had become the effective rulers of Ireland in the 15th century, had become unreliable allies of the Tudor monarchs. Again in , Silken Thomas Fitzgerald went into open rebellion against the crown. Having put down this rebellion, Henry resolved to bring Ireland under English government control so the island would not become a base for future rebellions or foreign invasions of England. In , he upgraded Ireland from a lordship to a full Kingdom. Henry was proclaimed King of Ireland at a meeting of the Irish Parliament that year. This was the first meeting of the Irish Parliament to be attended by the Gaelic Irish chieftains as well as the Hiberno-Norman aristocracy. With the institutions of government in place, the next step was to extend the control of the English Kingdom of Ireland over all of its claimed territory. This took nearly a century, with various English administrations either negotiating or fighting with the independent Irish and Old English lords. The Spanish Armada in Ireland suffered heavy losses during an extraordinary season of storms in the autumn of
Even James Ussher , the famous and respected Archbishop of Ireland in the seventeenth century, is today greatly ridiculed for declaring that the world was created in BC. However, this date was widely accepted until people began to believe in ideas such as billions of years of Earth history. In other words, they started trusting in the latest secular findings based on fallible dating methods, instead of the only absolutely reliable method—consulting the history book provided by the Eyewitness account the infallible Word of God.
Ussher also argued that Day 1 of creation was October
The history of Ireland could be described with some justification as a sad catalogue of invasion upon invasion, of petty tribal infighting between each successive group, providing the opportunity for the next invaders who were usually better armed and more experienced in warfare, to gain a foothold. This lack of cohesiveness and tendency towards personal material enhancement appears to have been the ultimate downfall of almost all of Irelands invaders, as they fought among themselves, and with previously arrived groups to control the land.
In many of these conflicts the main protagonists were related by blood or marriage, to give three prime examples, the battle of Clontarf, the invasions of Edward and Robert the Bruce and the battle of the Boyne. The Irish nation of today is descended from a rich cultural and genealogical mixture of all these peoples, who came conquered and in the fullness of time integrated, giving rise to the phrase ‘More Irish than the Irish themselves.
Our sources were many and often presented conflicting accounts, as of course is only to be expected. It is difficult for authors to avoid applying his or her own personal political and religious allegiance to the interpretation of events and situations they are describing. Not forgetting also that the original source material from which history is compiled is usually written, sanitized and often embellished by the victor, to the detriment of the vanquished and the truth.
The original provinces, sometimes called the five fifths of Ireland, were probably Ulster, Leinster, Munster, Connaught, and Mide. But the number of provinces and their boundaries were in a state of constant flux.

These are the Declaration Latin: Confessio  and the Letter to the soldiers of Coroticus Latin: Epistola ,  from which come the only generally accepted details of his life. In it, Patrick gives a short account of his life and his mission. Most available details of his life are from subsequent hagiographies and annals , which have considerable value but lack the empiricism scholars depend on today.
Hagiography records other names he is said to have borne. Harvey argues that Cothraige “has the form of a classic Old Irish tribal and therefore place- name”, noting that Ail Coithrigi is a name for the Rock of Cashel , and the place-names Cothrugu and Catrige are attested in Counties Antrim and Carlow. His own writings provide no evidence for any dating more precise than the 5th century generally. His Biblical quotations are a mixture of the Old Latin version and the Vulgate , completed in the early 5th century, suggesting he was writing “at the point of transition from Old Latin to Vulgate”,  although it is possible the Vulgate readings may have been added later, replacing earlier readings.

While religious revivals had occurred within Protestant churches in the past, the evangelical revivals that marked the 18th century were more intense and radical. Bebbington says, “The dynamism of the Evangelical movement was possible only because its adherents were assured in their faith. Whereas the Puritans had held that assurance is rare, late and the fruit of struggle in the experience of believers, the Evangelicals believed it to be general, normally given at conversion and the result of simple acceptance of the gift of God.
The consequence of the altered form of the doctrine was a metamorphosis in the nature of popular Protestantism. There was a change in patterns of piety, affecting devotional and practical life in all its departments.

Terminology[ edit ] The word evangelical has its etymological roots in the Greek word for ” gospel ” or “good news”: Martin Luther referred to the evangelische Kirche “evangelical church” to distinguish Protestants from Catholics in the Roman Catholic Church. This usage is reflected in the names of Protestant denominations, such as the Evangelical Church in Germany a union of Lutheran and Reformed churches and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.
For example, the Times Literary Supplement refers to “the rise and fall of evangelical fervor within the Socialist movement”. To evangelicals, the central message of the gospel is justification by faith in Christ and repentance , or turning away, from sin. Conversion differentiates the Christian from the non-Christian, and the change in life it leads to is marked by both a rejection of sin and a corresponding personal holiness of life. A conversion experience can be emotional, including grief and sorrow for sin followed by great relief at receiving forgiveness.
The stress on conversion differentiates evangelicalism from other forms of Protestantism by the associated belief that an assurance of salvation will accompany conversion. Among evangelicals, individuals have testified to both sudden and gradual conversions. All evangelicals believe in biblical inspiration , though they disagree over how this inspiration should be defined.
Many evangelicals believe in biblical inerrancy , while other evangelicals believe in biblical infallibility. This is understood most commonly in terms of a substitutionary atonement , in which Christ died as a substitute for sinful humanity by taking on himself the guilt and punishment for sin.
Share In the following article an account is given of Christianity as a religion, describing its origin, its relation to other religions, its essential nature and chief characteristics, but not dealing with its doctrines in detail nor its history as a visible organization.

Moreover, the Christianity of which we speak is that which we find realized in the Catholic Church alone; hence, we are not concerned here with those forms which are embodied in the various non-Catholic Christian sects, whether schismatical or heretical.

Sought after residence in 8th century west of Ireland Wild Roman writers recorded the tribesmen of Ireland as being even fiercer than the Britons. Human heads were taken as trophies and Strabo and Jerome both comment on Irish cannibalism. Inter-tribal warfare was endemic though the clans fought as a horde, in complete disarray. Their weaponry was limited, spears, slings and axes — their most prized possessions — and they wore no armour. If the tribesmen rode to battle on horse it was without benefit of stirrup or bridle, and they dismounted to fight.
One consequence of Rome’s decision not to invade was that the Christianizing of Ireland, no less insidious than elsewhere in Europe, was a particularly protracted process. In the barbarous conditions of the island the eradication of pre-Christian religion took many centuries.

It was in a valley at the foot of a hill, but the saint was not content. He had special designs in his heart for that district, and at length the chieftain told him to select in his territory any site he would deem most suitable for his religious purpose.
Patrick chose that beautiful hill on which the old cathedral of Armagh stands. As he was marking out the church with his companions, they came upon a doe and fawn, and the saint’s companions would kill them for food; but St.
Remnants of their presence are still scattered across the island. Mountsandel in Coleraine in the north of Ireland is the oldest known site of settlement, with remains of woven huts, stone tools, and food such as berries and hazelnuts being discovered there by archaeologists. The picture after that is very uncertain, but it seems most likely that several small waves of settlers arrived at various subsequent stages. At some point after about BC, there were certainly arrivals by Indo-European Celts and perhaps even as early as BC , and they remained fully independent as Ireland was never conquered by the Romans.

Biblical Underpinning for Slavery For many centuries slavery was perfectly acceptable to Christians. Christians had no doubt that it was divinely sanctioned, and they used a number of Old and New Testament quotations to prove their case. Looking at the relevant passages it is clear that the Bible does indeed endorse slavery. In the Old Testament God approved the practice and laid down rules for buyers and sellers Exodus Men are at liberty to sell their own daughters Exodus Slaves can be inherited Leviticus And if a man smite his servant, or his maid, with a rod, and he die under his hand; he shall be surely punished.
Notwithstanding, if he continue a day or two, he shall not be punished: Time and time again the Old Testament confirms that slaves are property and their lives are of little consequence. To prove the strength of Job’s faith, God sends Satan to test him by visiting disasters upon him. Amongst these disasters is the killing of Job’s numerous slaves Job 1.
