17 January 2020: Faith in the Town, 1740-1830

John Rylands Library, University of Manchester.

Submissions are invited for a one-day workshop at the John Rylands Library, University of Manchester, on Friday 17 January 2020. As part of a three-year project funded by the AHRC, the workshop will focus on ordinary people’s experiences of religion in urban areas between 1740 and 1830. We particularly welcome papers that problematise the connection between urbanisation, industrialisation and secularisation, as well as the methodology of exploring urban lay piety beyond the records left by clergy and the administrative structures of organised religion.
