OXFORD MOVEMENT by Eugene R.-Ed. Fairweather


Email this review


The movement in nineteenth century English religious life known as The Oxford Movement, or the Anglo-Catholic revival, is presented in this volume of the Library of Protestant Thought. Selections are offered from others. Five sections organize the material: to present the intellectual and political situation, the ecclesiastical authority in which the Movement began, the impact of the movement upon traditional ideas as to the nature of the Church of England, the opposition of the movement to contemporary Protestantism, and the sacramental piety and theology in which the movement was rooted. As in other volumes of the series, comprehensiveness in the selections, rather that superficial discursiveness, makes for a solid representation of the main trends and forces in the Movement. The editor, professor at Trinity College, University of Toronto, provides introductions and notes with fine competence.
