This book considers the religious ideas, attitudes, and values of working people in the London Borough of Southwark between 1880 and 1939. It shows the persistence of folk beliefs usually assumed to have died out in the cities and highlights the importance of religion in the daily life of the community. It illustrates how orthodox and institutional expressions of belief were reinterpreted within local culture to form part of a distinctive pattern of urban popular religious belief.

S. C. Williams is a Research Fellow, Department of Theology at University of Birmingham.Review:
"S.C. Williams has written an engaging and important book about working class religiosity in London that challenges the secularization thesis....Written with verve and clarity, and superbly edited, the monograph makes the case for the persistence of private and semi-public religious belief and expression in the face of evident institutional decline. Williams integrates her interviewees' words well with the large historiography on the subject to offer up a persuasive argument for the ways in which religious belief maintains itself over time..."--Anglican And Episcopal History
