Shaping Belief

Culture, Politics, and Religion in Nineteenth-Century Writing

edited by Victoria Morgan

Liverpool University Press

Shaping Belief explores how the energy of belief came to manifest itself in nineteenth-century writing. This manifestation was evident as much in expressions of newly formed personal relations to ideas, as in the appropriation of religious discourse in writing of the period. By re-visioning the place of belief in nineteenth-century writing this collection provides important forays into current thinking, both on the position occupied by belief within nineteenth-century literary studies, and within contemporary culture itself.
