Britain is one of only a handful of countries in the world which is rapidly moving from having a Christian majority to a ‘no religion’ majority. But we are not becoming secular – only a quarter of us are confident there is no God; fewer than one in ten report being influenced by secularism. The lecture approaches this apparent paradox by excavating the category of ‘no religion’, and showing how and why the categories of the religious and the secular are losing their analytic power in relation to the current cultural situation. Drawing on new research, it traces the emerging outlines of a new, post-Protestant, moral paradigm.
