Research output: Book/ReportOther report


This report outlines the context, methods,
data, and findings of the Arts and Humanities
Research Council funded project British Ritual
Innovation under Covid-19 [BRIC-19]. The
project ran from August 2020 to September 2021,
with the aim of documenting and analysing
changes to British communal religious life
during the Covid-19 pandemic and associated
lockdowns, and of providing best practice
recommendations for religious communities
adapting their practice to address similar crisis
situations in the future. Particular effort has
been made to include data that reflects, to the
extent possible, the geographic and religious
diversity of Britain, by focussing on questions
of religious practice rather than on theological
questions or issues of belief which are specific to
faith traditions.
