Abstract

The geography of religion has received limited research attention within cultural geography in the UK. The present research employs a statistical-cartographic approach to provide a detailed mapping of the geography of religious affiliation in Glasgow. The paper first addresses a number of key conceptual and methodological questions underlying the mapping of geographies of religion; then presents a detailed empirical analysis of different socio-cultural, spatial and temporal dimensions of the geography of religious affiliation in the city. Finally, based on the findings of the present research, a number of questions for further research are identified.
