Oracles of God helps explain what divided a church, a society, and
a new state in Ireland. This superbly researched book gives a
detailed account of the political outlook and activities of the
Roman Catholic Church, nationally and in the localities, during the
fifteen years after the Treaty, both during and after the Civil
War. Patrick Murray examines and assesses the clerical response to
the Treaty, the involvement of bishops and priests in pro-Treaty
and anti-Treaty politics, the fundamentalist Republicans of the
left and right, and the Northern state. The author draws on a wide
range of, hitherto, unexplored archival material, and on the
expertise of local historians and scholars. No other account deals
in such depth and detail with the political involvement of the
Roman Catholic clergy, of every rank in Irish politics, North and
South, between 1922 and 1937.
