about

This book offers a challenge to conventional histories of secularisation by focusing upon the importance of central religious narratives. These narratives are changed significantly over time, but also to have been invested with importance and meaning by religious individuals and organisations as well as by secular ones.
David Nash is Professor of History at Oxford Brookes University, UK. He has published on the history of blasphemy, the atheist movement in Britain, the history of shame in the nineteenth century and the history of secularisation. He has also given advice on the issue of blasphemy to a number of NGOS and western governments.
