Black Country Élites

Richard H. Trainor

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the competition and cooperation between religious institutions and parliamentary politics in the Black Country in England during the period from 1830 to 1900. Though religion and politics were important aspects of the elite civic life, they had much potential for division as well as unity. This chapter analyses the relationship between the elites, the adherents, institutions, and campaigns of political parties and churches and chapels in order to determine the impact of sectarianism and partisanship on social relations.

Keywords:   religious institutions, parliamentary politics, Black Country, England, elites, social relations, civic live, religion and politics
