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

95 editions published between 1891 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,872 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
