abstractMainstream religion in contemporary middle England has been described as a matter of "believing without belonging" (Davie, G., 1994). In multiethnic inner-city districts, however, religious belonging remains significant; indeed it is probably growing as a key dimension of ethnic & communal identity. Recent survey research in East London offers empirical evidence for this thesis & shows that both fundamentalist proselytizing forms of religion & pluralist syncretistic forms are to be found. Detailed statistical analysis of the data suggests that each of these is associated with other variables, eg, ethnicity, religious affiliation, & age. The patterns that emerge are complex, but illustrate the continuing importance of religion as a significant variable in the daily lives of many East Enders. 8 Tables, 33 References.
