Discusses the nature and content of evangelical Christianity and the problems associated with defining what is a variegated movement loosely organized around a theological core. Given Ian Paisley’s fundamentalist associations, particular attention is paid to unpacking the relationship between evangelicalism and fundamentalism. It is argued that they represent two overlapping but distinct forms of belief within a spectrum of conservative Christianity. The chapter concludes with a description of the multifaceted status of evangelicalism in Ulster and introduces the notion of ‘open’ and ‘closed’ evangelicalism.
