Medieval Ireland was a land of Christian faith and learning, with no experience of heresy trials before the 14th century; the Roman Church, however, viewed the ‘isle of saints’ as unorthodox, handing the English a reason to colonize. Illuminating the divisive relations between the native Irish, Anglo-Irish and English, this study examines the trials that began with the heretical inquest of the Templars in 1312 and includes the case of Alice Kyteler – the first ‘devil-worshipping witch’ – and her Anglo-Irish associates.
