High Church Prophet


Oxford University Press

This chapter analyzes English High Churchmanship in the 18th century. Topics discussed include Latitudinarianism and its loss of cohesion and distinctiveness, Tory High Church influences, and Hutchinsonianism and religious revival. Historians have sometimes conveyed the impression that the Hutchinsonians were the only genuine High Churchmen left in the Church of England in the second half of the 18th century. This is mistaken. The country at large exhibited many different manifestations of a Church-conscious and Sacrament-conscious divinity that still needed to be brought together. Some were inheritances from the past, mature and declining. Others, like Hutchinsonianism, bore the stamp of revival. Provincial centres had their distinctive traditions.

Keywords:   High Churchmanship, High Church, Latitudinarianism, Hutchinsonianism, Church of England, 18th century, religious revival
