 An English Spring: Memoirs Cormac Murphy O'Connor 9781472913142

When John Henry Newman spoke of his hopes for the renewal of the Church, he imagined not only sunshine and the blossoming of new life, but icy winds and torrential rain. His forecast of 'an English Spring' was to prove remarkably far-sighted.

With affection and wry humour, another English cardinal, Cormac Murphy-O'Connor, reflects on his Irish Catholic roots and English upbringing, his...

 Jewish Ireland in the Age of Joyce: A Socioeconomic History Cormac O. Grada 9780691127194

James Joyce's Leopold Bloom--the atheistic Everyman of Ulysses, son of a Hungarian Jewish father and an Irish Protestant mother--may have turned the world's literary eyes on Dublin, but those who look to him for history should think again. He could hardly have been a product of the city's bona fide Jewish community, where intermarriage with outsiders was rare and piety was pronounced....
