Diplomacy and Political Evangelism, 1886–1893

Preview

Saunderson had been one of the architects of a cross-class loyalist alliance, and given the relative success of his endeavour by the summer of 1886, his talents as a political evangelist and proselytizer were temporarily redundant. Constitutional uncertainty in 1893 extended beyond the question of the Union, and while the fate of the Home Rule Bill might have been predictable, the fate of the Lords and therefore of a key Unionist bulwark was more problematic. Given this political atmosphere, Saunderson’s acute and enduring anxiety becomes unimaginable.

Keywords: cross-class loyalism; political evangelist; Home Rule Bill
