High Church Prophet


Oxford University Press

Samuel Horsley was a true friend of Roman Catholics. His favour towards them did not only proceed from their value as allies against Revolution and unbelief, but was rooted in a sincere belief in toleration, as understood by conservative Churchmen of the time. Not less, however, did it arise from a sense of shared theological conviction that extended to many parts, though not to the whole, of the Roman system. His endorsement in the House of Lords of the Ultramontane position on canonical obedience, and Milner's public recognition from the Roman side that there were two different kinds of Anglicanism, were features of the co-operation that helped to define emergent ‘orthodox’ High Churchmanship and to fix its position in the Church of England in the three decades that lay ahead.
