This book explores ritualism in the Church of England, covering the whole of the British Isles and not just the well-known churches and clergy beyond which many earlier studies did not venture. There has been a good deal of debate among historians and theologians as to whether or not the phenomenon that became known as ritualism was a logical extension of the developments in Anglican High–Church theology known as the Oxford Movement. Although many aspects of Victorian religious history have been the subject of revisionist studies in recent years, there has been no major reassessment of Anglican ritualism. Such a revisionist study is, therefore, the overall aim of this book. It examines Anglican historiography and considers the origins of ritualism to emphasize the strength of influences that were not wholly religious but permeated other areas of British culture: architecture, art, historical research, literature, philosophy, and political thought.

Keywords:   Church of England, ritualism, historiography, British Isles, Anglican High–Church, political thought, philosophy, art, theology, Oxford Movement
