Comments Walmesley's conjecture that the end of the reign of locusts might symbolize a revival of Catholicism to take place about the year 1825 caused a stir in England and Ireland early in the 19th century. Although the Catholic Emanciation Act was passed in England in 1829, there would be no significant religious realignment in the two countries.
