European Religion in the Age of Great Cities 1830-1930

H Macleod

$235.00

Hardback
Hugh McLeod approaches the topic of 19th-century urban society, by commissioning articles on representative European cities which discuss the same set of themes, over the same period. Broadly based and comparative, this work looks at three main subjects* responses by the churches to urbanization, the impact of urbanization on religious change, and urban religious cultures.

- Publisher Europe in the nineteenth century saw spectacular growth in the size and number of cities and in the proportion of the population living in urban areas. Many contemporaries thought that this social revolution would bring about an equally dramatic change in religious life. This book, written by an international team of specialists, provides an authoritative account of religious change, both at the institutional and popular level, in Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox cities, in seven European countries.
