  • The beatified Irish martyrs are a selection of seventeen of the hundreds of bishops, priests, religious and laity, male and female, who died for their faith in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This volume presents the findings of the Historical Commission set up by the diocese of Dublin to examine the evidence for the beatification of the seventeen. The historical investigation of each martyr is based on sources (many of them newly discovered) indispensable for any historical research into that period, which are critically evaluated here for the first time.
