A comprehensive history of religion in England during the Victorian era, covering such topics as religion and science, religion and history, social problems, the press, literature and art, worship, new critical methods, federation and reunion. The first 30 years of the 19th century are treated very briefly, so that the emphasis of the volume is upon the events of the Victoria's reign. Later chapters cover particular topics and issues, showing both the relationship between the churches and the society in which they existed and also major movements within the churches.
