A History of Religion in Britain: Practice and Belief from Pre-Roman Times to the Present

Full Product Description

The religious beliefs and practices of the peoples of Britain have played a central role in the island's culture, history and destiny, and have done so from the earliest times to the present. Different gods, rituals and churches have struggled for pre-eminence. They have been changed and shifted by conquests, wars, missions, leaders, rulers, ideas, immigrants, tolerance and bigotry.;This book is the first one-volume history of religious belief and practice in England, Wales and Scotland. It covers the period from Roman times to the present. Its focus is on the worship and the beliefs of the British peoples, the questions which exercised them, and the degree to which belief and practice were changed by institutional reforms and upheavals in church or state. Christianity occupies the greater part of the book, but considerable space is devoted to pre-Christian and non- Christian beliefs, in particular Judaism and Islam.
