This chapter discusses new bearings in the Catholic revival in Anglicanism represented by the theological works of Charles Gore, Henry Scott Holland, and the Holy Party. They promoted and encouraged new social thought and action and a form liberal Catholicism as contained in the Essays Catholic and Critical. Despite this, the problem of change and continuity in the Christian Church and in Christian theology remained to be of central concern. This was reflected in renewed interests in John Henry Newman's Lectures on the Prophetical Office.
