Chapter Summary

This bibliography section presents the list of primary and secondary sources relevant to the discussion of secularization. Prominent sociological defenders of the secularization thesis argue that functional differentiation, as part of the process of modernization, inevitably led to a decline in the "social significance" of religion in the public sphere, that is, in that domain of society in which essential social, political, and economic functions are carried out on society's behalf.

Keywords:secularization; social significance
