  2. 2. Using material from Item A and elsewhere, assess the view that most people today see spirituality and religious belief as purely private and personal matters. (18 marks. Jan 2010) AO1 – Knowledge & Understanding A top band answer is likely to include at least 4 of the following: Have I included them? Grace Davie – ‘believing without belonging’. Religious faith doesn’t necessarily include membership or attendance at places of worship any longer. It has become privatised. Danielle Hervieu-Leger (postmodernist) – ‘spiritual market place’. In postmodern society, religion, like every other part of our identity & lifestyle, becomes a personal choice. We ‘pick & mix’ & create our own faith. (Could include Lyotard) Wilson – secularisation. Society has become more secular. Mainstream religions have lost their authority. Churchgoing is no longer the norm. Martin - changing social & leisure patterns. Sundays are no longer ‘sacred’. People work or pursue other leisure interests. Internet & globalisation – people may find out about or even practice a faith online. Wallis – alternative forms of spirituality (e.g. NRMs) involve only a tiny fraction of the population and are shortlived. The majority of people still practice faith through mainstream religions. Heelas – Kendal Project. Privatised ‘New Age’ spirituality is growing, but is still tiny compared to the mainstream ‘congregational domain’. Growth of non-Christian and non-mainstream Christian organisations. It’s not that people are moving away to a more personal and privatised faith, just that the Church of England and the Catholic Church are losing followers. Other organisations are going strong. Faith schools remain strong too. Wilson & Weber – the world is more secular & rational. It’s not that religious belief is purely a private matter, it’s that religious belief becomes increasingly impossible in such a scientific world. (Ref popularity of Richard Dawkins’ ‘God Delusion’.)

  3. 3. Using material from Item A and elsewhere, assess the view that most people today see spirituality and religious belief as purely private and personal matters. (18 marks. Jan 2010) AO2 – Interpretation, Application, Analysis & Evaluation Skill How my essay could be improved: Interpretation & Application: question is clearly understood, and the material used is accurately explained and its relevance made clear. Arguments are applied to evidence or real-life examples. Analysis: is explicit & clear. The answer is well-structured, no points are left hanging. All parts are linked together (no ‘scattergun approach’). Comes to a distinct and logical conclusion. Evaluation: ideas are contrasted clearly, and valid criticisms made. Evidence is weighed up before a logical conclusion is drawn. Methodological issues, where relevant, are highlighted.
