From the Publisher
“An interesting book that explores the vibrant nature of religious life during this period. Limiting his study to Christianity and saying little about Roman Catholicism, Schlossberg does not offer a general history of Victorian religion or a study of doctrine or institutions, but instead seeks answers for the apparent success of secularism in Victorian England…Based on 19th-century sources and recent scholarship, this volume presents an insightful analysis of the world of late Victorian religion."
–R. M. Kollar, Choice
“Herbert Schlossberg’s brilliant and learned book… is a most lively and stimulating work of interpretative summary and synthesis by a master of the subject.”
– Sheridan Gilley, Durham University
“Richly detailed... weave(s) together an intricate tapestry of Victorian voices. His approach relies on juxtaposing contemporary reflections rather than superimposing secondary frameworks... This approach allows the reader to engage directly with the highly nuanced socio-religious climate of late Victorian England."
—Sarah C. Williams, American Historical Review
