“The process of secularisation arises not from the loss of faith but from the loss of social interest in the world of faith. It begins the moment men feel that religion is irrelevant to the common way of life and that society as such has nothing to do with the truths of faith.”
Christopher Henry Dawson, Religion and World History: A Selection from the Works of Christopher Dawson

“Happy is the people that is without history. And thrice is the people without sociology.”
Christopher Henry Dawson, Enquiries Into Religion and Culture
