The Emergence of the Maurician Synthesis: A Coleridgean in Theology

Show Summary Details


Places Maurice’s work in the specific theological, ecclesial, and educational contexts in which he was raised, from Unitarianism to High Church Anglicanism. Pays attention especially to the political and social criticisms of Establishment held by his father and his colleagues, and to the contrasting impact on him of the Christian Platonism of Cambridge and the Anglican Orthodoxy of Oxford. Maurice’s transition from his paternal home, with its cautious leanings towards religious rationalism and political radicalism, is be traced through the influence of Julius Hare (at Cambridge) and, above all, Samuel Taylor Coleridge.
