This book poses new questions about the religious, the secular and the implications of each for the process known as secularization. Looking carefully at the gendered nature of care, they ask why women predominate so noticeably in both religion and welfare, at least in the delivery of service. The topical issues in this book include the increased visibility of religion in the public sphere, the anxieties of European populations about the welfare state and the centrality of gender to both questions.
