Abstract

About the book:
This book offers a fully up-to-date and comprehensive guide to religion in Britain since 1945. A team of leading scholars provide a fresh analysis and overview, with a particular focus on diversity and change. They examine:


relations between religious and secular beliefs and institutions

the evolving role and status of the churches

the growth and ‘settlement’ of non-Christian religious communities

the spread and diversification of alternative spiritualities

religion in welfare, education, media, politics and law

theoretical perspectives on religious change.
The volume presents the latest research, including results from the largest-ever research initiative on religion in Britain, the AHRC/ESRC Religion and Society Programme. Survey chapters are combined with detailed case studies to give both breadth and depth of coverage. The text is accompanied by relevant photographs and a companion website.
