Book Description:

This study seeks to develop a new context for reading later Victorian fiction and for understanding the process of 'secularization'. Norman Vance explores how the novels of George Eliot, Thomas Hardy, Mary Ward, and Rider Haggard acquired greater cultural centrality, just as the authority of the scriptures and of traditional religious teaching seemed to be declining, and offered a new forum for the exploration of religious and moral themes.
