'"Let him be an Englishman": Irish and Scottish clergy in the Caribbean Church of England, 1610-1720'

Research output: Contribution in Book/Report/Proceedings - With ISBN/ISSNChapter (peer-reviewed)peer-review



This article reconstructs the personnel of the Anglican church in the greater Anglophone Caribbean, at a time when it was struggling to win the hearts and minds of settlers and slaves. It explores the above-average contribution made by non-English clergy, and concludes that they were welcomed as having greater commitment to the values of the Anglican Church and its mission in the foreign plantations.
