This chapter begins by outlining how catechizing and visitation was conducted, and the impact evangelicalism had upon pastoral efficiency in the Synod of Ulster. Section two examines the provision of education through Sunday and day schools, noting the symbiotic relationship between the supply of opportunities for education on the part of voluntary societies and the demands of the laity. The chapter concludes by examining in general terms the reading practices of Presbyterians, what and how they read, and the impact evangelicalism had upon the demand for, and supply of, certain types of reading material.
