Submitted: 09.08.2018.
Abstract. The article examines the process of studying secularisation in England in the XVIII-XIX centuries by the modern English historiography. The existing views on the concept of secularisation and the scope of its applicability to the description of the English religious life during this period are analysed. The paper carries out the analysis of the conceptions of such researchers as D. Martin, A. D. Gillbert, H. McLeod, J. Clark, and others. It is concluded that most authors recognize the presence of serious secularisation processes in Victorian England, although they differ in assessing their causes, dynamics and scales.
Key words and phrases: , , , , , secularisation, historiography, Church of England, dissenters, anticlericalism.
