Overview

Contrary to its popular image as dull and stodgy, the Victorian period was one of revolutionary change. In its politics, its art, its economic aff airs, its class relationships, and in its religion, change was constant. A half-century after Queen Victoria's death, it was said that she was born in one world and died in another. Th e most interesting and valuable studies of the period take the long view, as does Schlossberg, in his fascinating analysis of religious life in this period.

For the Victorians, religion was not cordoned off from the push and shove of real life. Th e early evangelicals got off to a shaky start, beset by hostility, but the movement spread within the churches despite the suspicion in which it was held. Evangelicals, frequently called Puritans by those who opposed them, called for fundamental reforms in both the Church and the society; a social ethic was part of their program of religious renewal. Th eir moral sense explains the social activism of both Church of England Evangelicals and Dissenters, including the half-century crusade for the abolition of slavery.

Schlossberg shows how religion in England dealt with such issues as science and the eff ect of German scholarship on religious thinking. Church history cannot simply be explained by its response to external forces as much as by the internal responses to those challenges. Th e nature of the religious enterprise itself, its theologians, clergy, lay people--like all people and all institutions--all responded with alternatives. Schlossberg helps us understand the Victorian period, as well as the increasing secularity of English life today.

Editorial Reviews

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
