Show Summary Details


Looks at the impact on Scottish Episcopalian of two major reforming movements in nineteenth‐century Anglicanism, namely, Evangelicalism and Anglo‐Catholicism. It particularly seeks to recover the influence and impetus of Evangelicalism among Scottish Episcopalians. It finds this largely within separate congregations alienated by the increasing Anglo‐Catholic culture in that Church, and also by the indigenous traditions of High Church Episcopalianism. Both Anglo‐Catholicism and Evangelicalism were largely divisive and anglicizing movements within the Episcopal Church, which contributed to its nineteenth‐century reputation as the ‘English Kirk’.
