Between Damnation and Starvation

Front Cover
McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP, Oct 25, 1999 - Religion - 340 pages
While some scholars have focused on various aspects of the denominational origins of the education system, and others have revealed the influence of religion on the electoral results of the pre-1864 period, the complete story has never been told. In Between Damnation and Starvation John Greene presents a first time, far-reaching analysis of the origins and evolution of developments in both religion and politics in Newfoundland. He reveals the full details of political struggles, presenting them against the background of the historical evolution of churches in the century prior to the granting of representative institutions. Between Damnation and Starvation provides a comprehensive treatment of a complex subject, taking into account the social, economic, and political developments of the entire period.
