  • Summary

Professor Grace Davie describes thinking theoretically about the sociology of religion in Europe and the United States. The European Enlightenment promoted freedom from belief; secularization was seen as necessary for modernization. The American Enlightenment took the form of freedom to believe; instead of rapid secularization, a market of religion gave rise to rational choice theory.
