Christianity and Society in the Modern World


About the Series

This series of social historical studies explores the relationship between Christianity and its social context in the period since 1500. Recent exciting new research in this field has greatly increased our understanding of how the changing face of Christianity as a historical religion during the period affected contemporary social attitudes, customs, and behaviour. The books in this series draw this research together, providing new perspectives and interpretations on a fascinating area of social history and bringing it before a wider audience.
