This book takes an in-depth look at the ecclesiastical history of the diocese of Kilmore from 1100 to 1800.

Having traced the development of the diocese for more than four hundred years from the twelfth-century Church reforms until the Henrician Reformation, this book then outlines the impact of the Reformation and the subsequent arrival of Church of Ireland and Presbyterian newcomers into the diocese. William Bedell, the Church of Ireland bishop of Kilmore who won the hearts of the native Irish and died shortly after the outbreak of the 1641 rebellion, was the best known of the newcomers. Later a sizeable Presbyterian population settled in this part of south Ulster as did a smaller number of Methodists, Moravians and Quakers. 

This wide-ranging and detailed study gives a fascinating and important insight into the ecclesiastical history of a rural north west of Ireland diocese over a period of seven centuries.
