Abstract

By 2015 those who said they had “no religion” when asked about religion on surveys and censuses had become an absolute majority in Britain. Drawing on surveys and interviews carried out in Great Britain between 2013 and 2015 this lecture offers a portrait of the “nones” and attempts to explain their rise to become a cultural majority.
