An Irish-born British statesman, a protestant of the established church with extensive links and sympathy with Catholicism, a New Man who defended the modernity of the British ancient régime, and a reforming Whig who vehemently opposed the revolution in France and was therefore adopted by latter-day political conservatives, are probably only some of Burke's (1729-97) identities. Scholars in a wide range of disciplines on both sides of the Atlantic and the Irish Sea look into it.
