The Catholic revival and ecumenical endeavour

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the influence of the Catholic revival in England during the 1830s that came from ecumenical endeavours. The Oxford Movement began as an assertion of Anglican identity and an affirmation of that identity in the continuity of the Church of England with the Church of the Fathers. John Keble's Assize Sermon in 1833 protested against the interference of secular authority with the order and church. This Tractarian position was supported by the letters of Ignatius of Antioch and the teachings of Cyprian of Carthage.
