Show Summary Details


This chapter explores the collection of essays published in 1889 as Lux Mundi. Lux Mundi is said to be responsible for bringing the heirs of the Tractarians into the modern age and Charles Gore himself, who contributed an essay on inspiration, is sometimes given the personal credit for creating the new attitude of mind. However, such an account needs correction because it ignores the sophistication of some essays included in the book, thus obscuring its real significance. When placed in its proper context, Lux Mundi is better understood as effect rather than cause of a widespread change in attitude.

Keywords: inspiration; Lux Mundi; Charles Gore; Tractarians
