This innovative book challenges many of the widely held assumptions about the impact of ritualism on the Victorian church. Through a detailed analysis of the geographical spread of ritualistic churches in the British Isles, the book shows that the impact of ritualism was as strong, if not stronger, in middle-class and rural parishes as in working-class and urban areas. It gives a detailed reassessment of the debates and controversies surrounding the attitudes of the Anglican bishops towards ritualism, the impact of public opinion on discussions in parliament, and the implementation of the Public Worship Regulation Act of 1874. It examines the wider historical implications by not simply focusing on ritualism during the Victorian period, but extrapolating this to show the impact that ritualism has had on the longer-term development of Anglicanism in the twentieth century.
