Abstract: The concept of peoplehood is widely held to distinguish ethnicity as a field of inquiry from domains such as religion, territory, language or politics. Peoplehood is about community, shared cultural attributes, descent and an identity linked to an historic territory; but forms of peoplehood may be found in domains other than ethnicity, sometimes in association with it but not always. This analysis focuses on religious peoplehood, examines it with reference to the Protestant minorities of France and the Irish Republic, and draws out the implications for research on ethnicity.
