This paper reports on one particular aspect of a survey conducted in Wales- namely the relation between Christian belief and two of the most characteristic marks of post-Enlightenment modem society. These are (i) personal autonomy or freedom and (ii) egalitarianism or social autonomy in a pluralistic society. The question, therefore, is whether there is any causal-relation, positive or negative, between modernity and current perceptions of God and God's relation to the world. Such a study could illuminate, on the one hand, how contemporary Christians handle a belief in God that has to take account of the pressures of modernity and, on the other hand, whether having religious faith actually affects attitudes.
