Description

In Irish Presbyterians and the Shaping of Western Pennsylvania, 1770-1830, Dr. Peter Gilmore argues that the origins of Presbyterianism in western Pennsylvania can be largely located in attempts by migrants of Irish origin to recreate an old world ethnoreligious culture. Gilmore attempts to understand their translation of religious belief and practice from the north of Ireland to western Pennsylvania, how it functioned, and how and why change occurred. He contends that ritual and daily religious practice, as understood and carried out by migrant generations, were abandoned or altered by American-born generations in the context of major economic change.
