''An Ark in the Deluge": Multyfarnham Abbey and the Nugents of Delvin, 1607-1641
Hazard, Benjamin (Benjamin James Joseph)
This article briefly surveys the Nugent family’s role as protectors and benefactors of the Irish Franciscans from the destruction of their Donegal friary and the Flight of the Earls to the outbreak of war in 1641. The success of the friars’ endeavours depended upon contact between the Atlantic archipelago, Spain and the papacy. For that reason, the following case study deals with Catholic landowners in Ireland, financiers in the Low Countries and the office of Cardinal Protector in Rome. Kinship is the key factor in understanding the provision of patronage in each case. Louvain 400 Fellowship Mícheál Ó Cléirigh Institute
