(p.218) 7 Protestant Approaches to Begging and Alms-Giving
Begging, Charity and Religion in Pre-Famine Ireland

Ciarán McCabe

Liverpool University Press

This chapter analyses the disparate views and responses towards beggary and alms-giving within Irish Protestantism. The significant role played by evangelicalism in framing approaches towards mendicancy is discussed. Themes which are explored, and which mirror the discussion in the previous chapter on Catholic approaches, include the ‘deserving’ / ‘undeserving’ distinction, the morality of indiscriminate alms-giving, and the role of Protestant commentators and churches on the Poor Law question.

Keywords:   Protestant, Begging, Alms-Giving, Evangelicalism, Archbishop Richard Whately
