Well, fret no more, Irish history lovers...

Capuchin Annual 1930-1977

The Annual frequently reflected a very strong nationalistic theme. The 1942 and 1966 editions of The Capuchin Annual are particularly well-known as they contained detailed articles, profusely illustrated, on the 1916 Rising. The complete collection of The Capuchin Annual is now being made freely available online solely for scholarly research.




Capuchin Annual (Wikipedia)


The Capuchin Annual was an Irish annual publication published every year in Dublin by the Capuchins from 1930 to 1977. The motto of the publication was Do chum Glóire Dé agus Onóra na hÉireann (For the Glory of God and the Honour of Ireland).
What with the number of digitalizing and cataloguing projects being done, including the letters and private papers of the Easter Rising leaders (among others) at the National Library of Ireland, we historians are living in very exciting times.

Well, I was lucky enough to have never been homeless. They took care of a lot of Dublin's poor over the years ...


The Capuchins were always a welcome guest in many homes around the Church Street area, not only from Catholics.
And then Benburb Street was notorious for its poverty - and the rest hadn't got much more.

Good resource. The Capuchins collected an amazing number of historical documents and photographs. This will be useful.

The restrictive world-view I escaped from.

Before TV, this was as good as it got, incl poems sent in 1944 by Francis Stuart from the heart of war-torn Nazi Germany, that was bravely defending christian europe from hordes of atheist jewish bolsheviks.

Nothing on the child abuse by 100s of priests in 1930-77? Spiritual awareness has its all-too-human limits.

Is the Capuchin Archive involved in this project?
