Example text

The bishops also had to take account of the reaction of the Roman authorities. With the lessons of the Dutch Church (Coleman, 1 978) in mind and the Dutch Synod ofJanuary 1 980 as a warning against excessive independence on the part of the local Church behind them, and the uncertain prospect of the Synod on the Family in Rome in September-October 1 980 ahead of them, the questions of contracep­ tion, intercommunion and the pastoral care of the divorced and invalidly married clearly had to be handled with great care, ifthe full power of a traditionalist and centralist Pope was not to be provoked so as to limit the autonomy of the bishops in England and Wales.

However, the models which have been outlined do provide standards of comparison based on the identification of key features of the actual social realities. In the earlier period of stability a 'mechanistic' or bureaucratically administered Church ensured a high level of loyalty and conform­ ity through its monopoly of control over the agencies of sociali­ sation, ideological legitimation and the maintenance of group soli­ darity using an imposing array of religious sanctions. The post­ Vatican period has been one of transition and of adaptation to the modern world.

In our work we frequently found it necessary to complement structured survey data with focussed interviewing in order to explore further the meanings which certain types of religious behaviour held for different types of Catholics. In practice it seems to me that multiple triangulation (Denzin, 1 970) makes sense. So I have come to the view that in researching change in the English Catholic community good empiri­ cal research generally needs to combine survey methodology with focussed interviewing and participant-observation research strate­ gies.
