‘A True Narrative of the Rise and Progress of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, 1623-1670’, also known as 'The Adair Narrative', by the Rev Patrick Adair has been re-printed by the Presbyterian Historical Society of Ireland with an introduction by the Rev Joseph Thompson.
This is the first contemporary account of the history of Presbyterianism in Ireland.
Patrick Adair was born in 1624 in Galloway, Scotland, and educated at the universities of St Andrews and Glasgow. After he was licensed he came over to Ireland and was ordained at Cairncastle in 1646 and then moved to Belfast where he ministered from 1674 to 1694. He wrote the earliest written history of the beginning, growth and development of Presbyterianism in Ireland in the 17th century. Entitled ‘A True Narrative of the Rise and Progress of the Presbyterian Church in Ireland, 1623-70’, it is an eye-witness account of the struggles faced by Presbyterian settlers in Ireland in their relationship with the Established Church in Ireland and with government authorities.
