(p.187) 6 Roman Catholic Approaches to Begging and Alms-Giving
Begging, Charity and Religion in Pre-Famine Ireland

Ciarán McCabe

Liverpool University Press

This chapter analyses distinctions in how Catholic teachings on charity and good works were understood by Catholics and Protestants, with both sides perceiving disparate moral consequences for both giver and receiver in the alms-giving transaction. The exploration of Catholic approaches to poverty, mendicancy and alms-giving are presented in two sections – the first analysing discourses, the second examining actions. Case studies are presented of the views and actions of Archbishop Daniel Murray, and Mary Aikenhead and the Religious Sisters of Charity, while the question of indiscriminate alms-giving is also considered.

Keywords:   Roman Catholic, Begging, Alms-Giving, Mary Aikenhead, Daniel Murray, Good Works
