The late 19th and early 20th centuries were regarded in many western countries as a time of religious crisis. This was generally believed to be most acute in cities and especially among the working class. This book focuses on working class religion in three of the world's greatest cities in this period of crisis. One of the most important matters at issue in the debate is that of the relationship between secularisation and urbanisation.
