First published in 1891, “The Oxford Movement” consists of a series of essays by R. W. Church, dean of St Paul’s Cathedral 1871–90, which together provide a largely chronological account of the development of the Oxford Movement, from Keble’s famous Assize Sermon in 1833 to the “catastrophe” of Newman’s secession from the Church of England in 1845.
It is a tribute to Church’s scholarship, style and insight that over a century later his book remains the best introduction, for student and general reader alike, to the most famous religious movement of nineteenth-century England. Church is without rival for his lucid treatment of complex issues and events, and he offers sympathetic insights into the minds of the leading protagonists.
Edited by Dr Arthur Burns, professor of Modern British History at King’s College London, this edition contains a summary, biographical note, introduction, bibliography and hundreds of hyperlinked explanatory notes
