This book charts the attempts made to introduce religious reforms into the diocese of Meathduring the th century. The study opens with an investigation of the towns of Meath and adiscussion of religion in the pre-reformation period. This is followed by a narrative of thereform initiatives introduced into the diocese and a discussion of the careers of three Tudorbishops there, which demonstrate the failure of religious reform in th-century Meath. Another chapter discusses the financial state of the Tudor church in Meath and the effect whichthis had on the suitability of the clergy there.
