Can “the ghosts of religion past” rest in peace? The Churches and alternative futures on the island of Ireland

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

In this post, Gladys Ganiel reflects on the historic role of Catholic and Protestant churches in perpetuating injustice—by promoting cultures of abuse and sectarianism—in both the north and south of Ireland. The island remains haunted by these past sins, on Ganiel’s account, and to move towards a more just future must come to terms with those sins. She suggests a focus on liberation theology and on the witnesses to abuse as a step towards creating a better future.
