This chapter documents Irish Cromwellian debates about the possibility of the extraordinary. This debate cut across the emerging denominational structures, as preachers and theologians debated the orthodoxy of miracles, prophecies, and the certainty of answered prayer. This debate highlighted the eclecticism at the heart of the Cromwellian reformation, as prominent clergy developed a spirituality that was apparently at odds with their scholastic puritan heritage.

Keywords:   extraordinary, miracles, prophecies, prayer, spirituality, eclecticism, scholastic
