Professor David Martin

It is with great sadness that we report the loss of a much-valued member of our Advisory Board and a great, in every sense of the term, sociologist of religion, David Martin. David was amongst the first readers of the draft proposal for the Grassrootsmobilise research programme, at a time when his support and enthusiasm were invaluable to Effie Fokas. He will be greatly missed by a broad community touched by his work and life. Another member of our Advisory Board – Grace Davie – reflects on his rich life here.
