This book examines the background to the arrival of Pentecostalism in Ireland in 1908. It analyses the factors that led to the formation of the three classical Pentecostal denominations in the British Isles: Elim, the Apostolic Church and the Assemblies of God. Elim is distinguished from the other two by having its origin in Ulster. Names that will appear in these pages include noted Anglicans such as the Rev. A. A. Boddy, the pioneer of the British Pentecostal movement, the Rev. Thomas Hackett from Dublin and John Leech, a member of the newly formed judiciary of post-partition Ireland. Other Pentecostal pioneers who feature are Smith Wigglesworth, Aimée Semple McPherson, Donald Gee and Daniel P. Williams.The book sets the growth of early Pentecostalism in the province within the distinctive religio-cultural context of Ulster Protestantism and the historical circumstances associated with the earlier ?Troubles? in Ireland.

Synopsis: Harvey Cox describes Pentecostalism as “the fascinating spiritual child of our time” that has the potential, at the global scale, to contribute to the “reshaping of religion in the twenty-first century.” This study grounds such sentiments by examining at the local scale the origin, development and nature of Pentecostalism in Ireland in its first twenty years. Illustrative, in a paradigmatic way, of how Pentecostalism became established within one region of the British Isles, it sets the story within the wider context of formative influences emanating from America, Europe and in particular, other parts of the British Isles. As a synoptic regional study in Pentecostal history it is the first survey of its kind.
