This chapter documents Irish Cromwellian debates about conversion–one of the most elemental components of protestant theology. Surprisingly, Irish Cromwellians could not agree whether conversion should be the basis or the goal of church membership and an individual's participation in the sacraments. Protestants in mid‐seventeenth century Ireland were prepared to accuse each other of preaching a false gospel, and of promoting an unbalanced mysticism in the search for religious assurance.
