Description: Jeremiah O'Flynn was a wandering priest par excellence, credited as being one of the founders of the Catholic Church in Australia where historians have treated him as an almost mythical figure. Yet, while essentially well-intentioned, O'Flynn was a very contrary and difficult man who resented all authority figures in church and state.

This biography situates his life against the background of the key political, social and ecclesiastical issues of the day - the French Revolution, slavery, the establishment of the British Empire, convict transportation, Catholic emancipation and the massive missionary expansion of Catholicism in the nineteenth century. Drawn from primary sources in the UK, the US and Australia, the book situates him in these historical contexts and explains how the bigger political issues of the time impacted on his life.
