Draws together the strands of the previous four chapters, presenting Maurice’s theological perspective as a wide-ranging reconsideration of the roots and nature of Christian orthodoxy, centered around a defence of a particular vision of Church, State, and Christian society. In ecclesiological terms, the significance of Maurice’s ecumenical perspective is highlighted here. Particular attention is also paid to his posthumous reputation as the theoretician of Anglican comprehensiveness.
