Gladstone Centenary Essays

Liverpool University Press

This chapter describes and assesses what Gladstone actually achieved for Ireland, that is, principally for Irish Catholics. It then considers his long–term reputation through an examination of how Gladstone has been treated by Irish, that is, mainly Irish–born historians. This second strand grows out of two influences — Herbert Butterfield's and others emphasis on the importance of discovering how historical ideas come into existence along with their transmission, and the recent debate on revisionism in Irish history spearheaded in academic circles by Fr Brendan Bradshaw.

Keywords:   Ireland, Irish Catholics, Irish historians, Herbert Butterfield, revisionism, Irish history, Brendan Bradshaw
