Throughout the history of Britain religion has been a potent and influential force, permeating social and political life at many different levels. Yet it has often been written about in restricted institutional terms without accounting for the ways in which religious belief and practice have been bound up with wider social and political developments. Religion, Politics and Society in Britain shifts the focus on this complex and fluctuating relationship and investigates the changing role of religion in British life from 600 A.D. to the present.By contrast, in this new book. Barbara Yorke uses the Christian conversion of the different peoples of Britain as a framework through which to explore the workings of their political systems and the structures of their social systems.
