'A stimulating and informative collection that examines a wide range of writers and texts from a variety of critical and theoretical perspectives. Essential reading for anyone interested in the relationships between literature, religion and theology in the Romantic period and beyond'. Simon Bainbridge, Lancaster University '... the volume comprises mostly lucid (and excellent) essays... a worthwhile effort. Recommended.' Choice 'Romanticism and Religion is testimony to a formidable literary critic whose dextrous intellectual pursuits have effectively established the legacy upon which this volume stands by marrying the religious with the literary in ever-fruitful, ever-insightful ways. After all, what is impressive about this volume is not just the breadth and scope of its individual contributions, but the way that, as a collection, it also manages to embrace and develop an active and stimulating debate across and between the wide-ranging views and arguments of its contributors. In this sense, the spirit of Bernard Beatty's critical acuity, indeed of the mind of the man himself, breathes in this book's pages, and promises a future of scholarly inspiration.' Byron Journal 'This book is an important addition to Ashgate's Nineteenth Century series, containing critical and theoretical discussion of Romanticism and its relationship with Religion... a worthy contribution to the field of Romantic studies, and will instigate and inspire continued debate on the subject for some time to come.' Romantic Textualities ' is refreshing to see theological and literary nuances examined in the light of the multifaceted religious thought that informs both Romanticism and postmodernity, rather than elided in the name of an obligatory materialism.'
