He rose to prominence when he returned to Dublin in the late 1680s and is known to Irish historians as the first Catholic provost of Trinity College (his tenure ended dramatically when he clashed with James II over his ecclesiastical policies and was banished as a result).

During a successful career in France and Italy, Moore became the only Irish rector of the University of Paris. He also published three works of philosophy, defending Aristotle against the new philosophy of Descartes and the Cartesians. This book offers a significant case study of the experience of Irish clerical and student migrants in early modern Europe.
