Abstract

To mark 500 years of Martin Luther’s Protestant Reformation, this one-hour documentary (co-written and presented by Dr Art Hughes) appeared, in October 2017, on BBC NI, RTÉ in Ireland – plus a Scottish Gaelic version presented by Alex O’Henly on BBC Alba.
The main thrust was an exploration of why Gaelic Ireland remained loyal to Catholicism and Rome while Gaelic Scotland, for the most part, converted to Presbyterianism, following the conversion of the Duke of Argylle, via John Knox and the latter’s dramatic conversion of Lowland Scotland due to his links with Calvin’s secondary Reformation in Geneva.
The role of the printing press in the Gaelic Reformation and Counter-Reformation was also examined in the light of three of the earliest printed books to emerge in the Gaelic World.
