The Oxford Movement in Practice

The Tractarian Parochial World from the 1830s to the 1870s

George Herring

  • Presents a re-interpretation of the historical progress of the Oxford Movement challenging a number of long accepted interpretations.
  • Highlights that Newmans departure in 1845 was far more energising than an impediment to the growth of Tractarianism, and that Ritualism was neither a natural nor gradual outcome of the Movement.
  • Argues that Tractarianism cannot be understood exclusively as a movement of ideas, but that its doctrinal theories were always intended to be realized in parochial practice.
