Notification: Don't miss out on this enriching read!

Keep an eye out for our upcoming article, 'Implicit religion, Anglican cathedrals, and spiritual wellbeing: The impact of carol services' authored by Leslie J. Francis, Ursula McKenna, Francis Stewart on 16 Apr. 2024. Contribution excerpt:Situated within the science of cathedral studies, this paper links in an original way three fields of discourse: Edward Bailey’s notion of implicit religion, David Walker’s notion of the four ways of belonging to God facilitated by the Anglican Church and John Fisher’s conceptualisation and operationalisation of the notion of spiritual wellbeing. The hypothesis developed from this original integration of theoretical perspectives is then tested empirically on data provided by 404 participants at carol services who do not believe in God. Stay tuned for insightful, original research content that captivates and inspires.
