Does it aid or support Christian convictions, or do its principles and methodology intrinsically tend to work like an acid, slowly eroding the intellectual foundations of Christian theism as a viable worldview? Has historical criticism benefited the lay faithful by improving their understanding of the text and thereby strengthening a living Christian faith, or has the method become associated with technical expertise and specialization such that the average believer avoids the text due to fear of interpretive inadequacy?
Its slum population rapidly increased fed by the mounting rural migration to the city and housed mostly in the north and south-west quarters of the city. Rival gangs known as the "Liberty Boys", mostly Protestant weavers from the Liberties and the "Ormonde Boys", Catholic butchers from Ormonde Market on the northside, fought bloody street battles with each other,  sometimes heavily armed and with numerous fatalities.
It was also common for the Dublin crowds to hold violent demonstrations outside the Irish Parliament when the members passed unpopular laws.
In the Dublin election riot occurred during a disputed vote as part of the Irish General Election.
One of the effects of continued rural migration to Dublin was that its demographic balance was again altered, Catholics becoming the majority in the city again in the late 18th century. While parliament was independent, both houses were the exclusive preserve of planters or Old English aristocracy.
By the late 18th century, the Ascendancy class of Irish Protestants — who were mostly descendants of British settlers — came to regard Ireland as their native country. This 'Patriot Parliament' successfully agitated at Westminster for increased autonomy and better terms of trade with Great Britain and the Colonies.
From the Penal Lawwhich discriminated against Roman Catholics in many areas of life, were gradually repealed, pushed along by liberals such as Henry Grattan.
See Ireland However, under the influence of the American and French revolutions, some Irish radicals went a step further and formed the United Irishmen to create an independent, non-sectarian and democratic republic. Wolfe Tonethe leader of the movement, was also from Dublin.
The United Irishmen planned to take Dublin in a street rising inbut their leaders were arrested and the city occupied by a large British military presence shortly before the rebels could assemble.
There was some local fighting in the city's outskirts — such as Rathfarnhambut the city itself remained firmly under control during the rebellion. Dublin circa from the Phoenix Park The Protestant Ascendancy was shocked by the events of the s, as was the British government. In response to them, in under the Irish Act of Unionwhich merged the Kingdom of Ireland with the Kingdom of Great Britain to form the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland the Irish Parliament voted itself out of existence and Dublin lost its political status as a capital.
Though the city's growth continued, it suffered financially from the loss of parliament and more directly from the loss of the income that would come with the arrival of hundreds of peers and MPs and thousands of servants to the capital for sessions of parliament and the social season of the viceregal court in Dublin Castle.
Within a short few years, many of the finest mansions, including Leinster House, Powerscourt House and Aldborough House, once owned by peers who spent much of their year in the capital, were for sale.
Many of the city's once elegant Georgian neighbourhoods rapidly became slums.
InRobert Emmetthe brother of one of the United Irish leaders launched another one-day rebellion in the city, however, it was put down easily and Emmet himself was hanged, drawn and quartered. In the wealthier Irish Catholics recovered full citizenship of the United Kingdom.
This was partly as a result of agitation by Daniel O'Connellwho organised mass rallies for Catholic Emancipation in Dublin among other places.
In Dublin this meant that the old franchise system, based on Protestant property holders and guild members was abolished and the vote for Dublin Corporation was granted to all property holders of over ten pounds per year.
This meant that Catholics, having been excluded from municipal government since the s, became a 2—1 majority in the electorate.
Daniel O'Connell, as a result, was elected Mayor inthe first elections held with the new franchise. He organised mass rallies known as "Monster Meetings" to pressure the British government to concede the return of the Irish Parliament, abolished in under the Act of Union, to Dublin.
The climax of his campaign was supposed to be a rally at Clontarfjust north of the city, which was chosen for its symbolic importance due to the Battle of Clontarf in Catholic Emancipation, term applied to the process by which Roman Catholics in the British Isles were relieved in the late 18th and early 19th cent.
