Religion in rural Wales: four restudies

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Four rural Welsh parishes were the subject of detailed fieldwork in the 1950s and early 1960s: Isabel Emmett's Llanfrothen, Trefor M. Owen's Llanuwchllyn, Alwyn. D. Rees's Llanfihangel yng Ngwynfa, and Ronald Frankenberg's Llansantffraid Glyn Ceiriog. This essay describes the extent to which the chapel culture in all four sites has decayed and offers a tentative explanation of why Llanuwchllyn has proved relatively more resistant to secularization than the other three parishes.
