The aim of this article is to suggest that the notoriously vague terms ‘postmodernism’ and ‘postmodernity’ can in fact plausibly be construed as referring to one aspect of the secularisation of Christian theological ideas, including of course the idea of God, that has been in progress since the Enlightenment, if not before. This interpretation, which some may judge tendentious, is advanced briefly towards the end of the article, but an attempt is first made to situate postmodernism historically in the contemporary world.
