The sociology and social history of religion in industrial Britain are still at a preliminary stage, where emphasis lies on collection rather than analysis of data, where description remains an important task, and where explanation is in part more or less informed guesswork. This chapter is largely confined to the area of indigenous Christianity, and makes few references to Judaism, and none to Christian or non-Christian religions introduced to the UK by recent immigration.
