Summary
"During the nineteenth century the forces of an increased religious pluralism, industrialization and secularism opened up a dynamically charged space in which ideas of unity might be challenged, fought for or reconfigured. The ways in which culture, politics and religion intersected to produce this unique space is the focus for this collection. In Shaping Belief a range of innovative critical essays, situated within contemporary theoretical debates, has been brought together to explore how the energy of belief that radical residue which flowed out from religion during the nineteenth century, came to manifest itself, evident as much in expressions of newly formed personal relations to ideas of the public or the poet's search for an aesthetics of unity, as in the appropriation and transmission of religious discourse in writing of the period."--BOOK JACKET
