'Peculiar Circumstances': Catholic chaplains of the Victorian British Army in India

2008

Abstract

Documents from the Indian Office Records paint a picture of the employment and conditions of Catholic chaplains in the British Army in India, chiefly among the Irish regiments and the Indian Labour Corps (previously known as coolies). Despite opposition from the Protestant Alliance, a live-and-let-live policy was largely followed.
