The Oxford movement : twelve years, 1833-1845 by R. W Church( Book )

112 editions published between 1891 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,895 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1891, The Oxford Movement consists of a series of essays by R.W. Church, dean (1871-90) of St Paul's Cathedral, which together provide a largely chronological account of the development of the Oxford Movement from Keble's famous Assize Sermon in 1833 to the "catastrophe" of Newman's secession from the Church of England in 1845. It is a tribute to Church's scholarship, style and insight that over a century later his book remains the best introduction, for student and general reader alike, to the most famous religious movement of nineteenth-century England. Church is without rival for his lucid treatment of complex issues and events, and he offers sympathetic insights into the minds of the leading protagonists. Edited by Dr Arthur Burns of King's College, London, this is the first annotated edition; in addition to hundreds of hyperlinked explanatory notes, it contains an introduction, summary, biographical note and bibliography
Spenser by R. W Church( Book )

128 editions published between 1879 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,817 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Edmund Spenser (1552-99) has been described as one of the greatest English poets, and is best known for The Faerie Queene, which he composed in celebration of the Tudor dynasty and Elizabeth I. Published in the first series of English Men of Letters in 1879, this biography by R. W. Church (1815-90), Dean of St Paul's, recounts Spenser's life and work, hailing him as a genius who continued the Chaucerian tradition of reflecting the deepest human passions through verse. Beginning with an account of his early life and his time as a Cambridge scholar, Church moves on to explore Spenser's career as secretary to Lord Grey of Wilton, the then Lord Deputy of Ireland. He concludes with a detailed analysis of The Faerie Queene, explaining its significance as a work of moral philosophy, and one that represented a cornerstone of English literary history
Bacon by R. W Church( Book )

This biography of philosopher, scientist, and writer Sir Francis Bacon (1561 1626), part of the English Men of Letters series, is an invaluable resource for students of history.
