Volume 2 concerns the religion of the people from religious practice and the routines of official devotion to 'popular religion' in all its aspects, from confraternities and pilgrimages to the dark margins of superstition. There is a section on morals, the confessional, commercial morality, sexual passion, and the theatre. Finally, two extended sections, one on the great Jesuit-Jansenist struggle incorporated in the feuds of Crown and Parlement, the other on the role of the Church in relations with the religious minorities--Protestants and Jews.
