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.


`If you need an up-to-date and well informed guide to the religious changes that took place in European cities in the 19th centuries, then this is your book. … a very thoughtful and well considered collection.' - Theological Book Review

`a very thoughtful and well considered collection.' - The Expository Times

About the Series

Christianity and Society in the Modern World

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.
