Christian Radicalism in the Church of England and the Invention

Format: Academic Monograph
Media: Hardback
PublisherCode: 9780198827009
Publisher: OUP Oxford

This study shows that Britain's 1960s moral revolution was importantly influenced by currents within British Christianity. The standard accounts assume that Britain's Sixties was a popular revolt against the churches, but this book shows that revolts against convention within the churches were highly significant in allowing Britain's 'secular revolution' to gain its own momentum. Through nationally-famous interventions in the Lady Chatterley's Lover trial (1960) and the controversial bestseller Honest to God (1963), radical clergymen were able to play a crucial role in the re-imagination of Britain, not as a 'Christian nation', but as a 'secular society', thus jump-starting a series of profound shifts in British moral culture.
