Provides an expansion of the first four volumes, containing both specially written essays and a related compilation of primary sources, drawn from the writings of the day.

Subsequent essays examine the relationship between religion and gender, trace the development of hymns and church music, and survey the history of Christian overseas missions in the Victorian era. the book then continues with two bographical studies, of Bishop John William Colenso and Professor Friedrich Max Muller, wich serve to illustrate wider themes. The final chapter constitutes a study of the presence of Islam in Victorian Britain.
