outside with new towns and cities, new secular and religious public buildings. New building is a manner of stating a new, revised, or ascendant identity. Pippin, father of Charlemagne, inaugurated a massive programme of cathedral and church building, the import of saintly remains and relics, and new or elaborated ceremonies and anointings. It was a use of ecclesiastical scenery and liturgy which was to be frequently repeated, and discussing the later church building of eleventh-century Europe, Diarmaid MacCulloch commented that ‘each new church was a reform in stone

The Good' of Orange exceptionalism
Joseph Webster

-unionist-loyalist culture via its provision of a constellation of Protestant-Zionist signs and symbols, including everything from flags, to coronation liturgies, to national anthems, to football chants, which could be connected up in diverse ways to produce a wide range of different images and imaginations of (decidedly non-metaphorical) Orange exceptionalism. The importance of the language of chosenness for Orangemen has also been noted by Buckley (1985) , whose analysis of the biblical stories on which Orange, Royal Arch Purple, and Royal Black Institution regalia are

declared that ‘whatsoever King may reign, I'll be the Vicar of Bray, Sir,’ fitted his theology and his liturgy to the ruling orthodoxy as determined by the monarch as lay governor of the Church of England. But another view is possible, that he was not a man without any identity, whose character at any one moment was a simple cover for or reflex of some objective material character. On the one hand, his principal identity was as the Vicar of Bray. On the other, the far from merely reflective or superficial or epiphenomenal significance of religious practice is confirmed

Association and distinction in politics and religion

religious practices of its members, whilst leaving their economic activities largely unattended, and their political ones non-existent in times of stability. Elizabeth I of England, who said that she did not wish to make windows into men's souls, was perhaps departing less radically from previous practice than appears. She insisted on public conformity to a prayer book and a liturgy that were imposed on all by secular law. What mattered was conformist behaviour. The terms ‘mobilised’ and ‘unmobilised’ have only a limited usefulness, since they refer

constituting phenomenon of human life, on which everything else depends, and at an only slightly less generalised level of argument, language can be presented as the fundamental constituting activity for human identity. 35 Its role is dramatically illustrated when collective identities are being challenged or asserted. The assertion of the role of Latin in the Catholic liturgy by the Council of Trent in the sixteenth century was as defining for the church's identity as was the shift to the vernacular by the Second Vatican Council in the twentieth. 36 Secular identity as

Methodism had emerged from Wesleyan Methodism in the early 1800s as an attempt to revert to an ‘original’, pure form of Wesley’s teachings, rejecting the influence of Anglicanism by re-asserting simplicity in buildings and liturgy, emphasising the role of the laity and, fundamentally, stressing the political implications of the Methodist creed promoting a focus on the working class and the poor. After his conversion, Wilson soon became a union Structures, agents and the ILP’s high tide 51 activist and began rising through the ranks of DMA agents (full-time officials

catechetical dimension and directly relates religious education to faith formation as an important part of the teacher’s work. The Catholic Preschool and Primary Religious Education Curriculum has four interrelated strands, ‘Christian Faith, Word of God, Liturgy and Prayer, and Christian Morality.’73 Judging by the continued insistence on sacramental preparation and by the fact that schools are still asked to ‘facilitate children who wish to “opt out” of faith formation’,74 this move appears to represent a limited acknowledgement of the existence of non-Catholic children in
