Item description for Religion and Society in Modern Europe (Making of Europe) by Rene Remond & Antonia Nevill...
This work examines the relationship between religion and society in Europe in the last two hundred years. At the end of the 18th century, Europe was dominated by Christianity and the institutions of state rested on their relationship with the church. Today, society retains many links with the past, but the rise of secular society has led to a new dynamic between European peoples, institutions of government and the church.

Reviews - What do customers think about Religion and Society in Modern Europe (Making of Europe)?
A thorough history of the downfall of religion in Europe Oct 1, 2007
I have to disagree with the previous reviewer - this book is anything but dull. The story is full of suspense and surprises. I had no idea that the history of religion had so many ups and downs and that so many things happened for the unexpected motive. This is a book about the complexity of history, abut how history is shaped by ideas and about the law of unexpected consequences. I have learned a lot from it.
Good overview Jun 28, 2002
This is a good overview, but is rather dull. It has the potential to be a decent referrence book.
