"The book discusses in turn the origin and development of the system of precisely defined parishes, their function - in terms of economics and personnel - and the church fabric which embodied the aspirations of parishioners, who saw the church more as an expression of their cultural and social hopes than as the embodiment of their faith. The book ends with the failure of the parish to meet all its obligations - social, governmental and religious - from the late eighteenth century onwards."--Jacket." ;
