Conclusion: Modernism and Christianity as a Field of Study

Part of the Modernism and … book series (MAND)


This book has made use of a range of incisive studies of single authors, specific issues or movements, and theoretical themes that are relevant to ‘Modernism and Christianity’, but as I noted at the outset, no previous attempt has been made to systematically outline a distinct field of Modernism and Christianity studies. It is no exaggeration to say that the conjunction is not in fashion: among the 56 chapters of the recent Oxford Handbook of Modernisms (2010), just one discusses Christianity, and that very briefly, within the limiting context of ‘Religion, Psychical Research, Spiritualism’.153 If the reader has got this far in the present book, such neglect should seem not just quaint but shocking, and in need of some explanation.
