Charles Taylor’s Features of the Old Theistic World

1.The natural world testified to divine purpose and action.

2. God was implicated in society. Earthly kingdoms were grounded in something higher than human action and secular time.

3. People lived in an “enchanted” world. A world in which there are spiritual and invisible realities beyond what the eye can see.

[From Taylor, A Secular Age]
