Nicholas Hope

Oxford University Press

Considers the first Protestant religious statistics, and a modern ‘practical theology’ that informed clergy and parishioners about the physiognomy of their local churches. A division between traditional village and hometown, and market town and industrial city, began to emerge. This put clergy recruitment and pastoral care in crisis. Class and secularism became worrisome.

Keywords:   class, clergy recruitment, home town, industrial city, market town, pastoral care, practical theology, religious statistics, secularism, village
