This chapter examines the contribution of churchman Edward Pusey to the Oxford Movement and to the Catholic revival in Anglicanism in England during the 1830s. Pusey's contribution to the movement consisted of his weighty scholarship, a profound spirituality, an unwavering belief in the catholicity of the Church of England, and the fostering of a religious life. Of the three men who emerged as leaders of the Oxford Movement, it was Pusey who became popularly linked with the Tractarian revival.
