Abstract

The origin of Beckford and Gilliat’s book lies in a two year research project (see James Beckford and Sophie Gilliat, The Church of England and Other Faiths in a Multi-Faith Society: Summary of the Report, Department of Sociology, University of Warwick, Warwick, 1996) which was funded by the General Synod of the Church of England and the Leverhulme Trust. James Beckford is Professor of Sociology at the University of Warwick and, at the time of the research, Sophie Gilliat was Research Fellow in the Department of Sociology, also at Warwick University.
