National Religion and Christian Faith in Northern Irelad

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Conflict in Northern Ireland has always had a strong religious dimension. Political ideologies had strong links with communities of one confession or another. Even in an age of secularisation, religious tradition still marks the boundaries of national identity. The transcendent claims of Christianity and nationalism fused and the boundary blurred. The decline of formal religion may not mean the decline of secular religion.
