Abstract :
Examines the church from the lowest stratum of its organisation - the parish - in which the church building is seen as the parishioners' handiwork and as a reflection of local popular culture. Discusses in turn the origin and development of the system of precisely defined parishes, their function - in terms of economies 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. Concludes with the failure of the parish to meet all its obligations - social, governmental and religious - from the late 18th c. onwards. ;
