EA #3. Unholy Catholic Ireland – Dr. Hugh Turpin

Dr. Hugh Turpin of Oxford University joins Feryl and Sahir on the podcast to share his work on  the decline of Catholicism in Ireland and the factors which have led to it. We also cover his current research with the Explaining Atheism project about understanding how Ireland, Northern Ireland and Poland, 3 regions with strong religious identities have seen steep declines in religious beliefs in recent years. We cover his book “Unholy Catholic Ireland: Religious Hypocrisy, Secular Morality, and Irish Irreligion” and discuss the history of religious identity in Ireland and what the future might hold.
