The Anglican Catholic Revival of the nineteenth century has been seen as an attempt to recover for the Church of England, and those churches descended from it, some of the doctrines and liturgical practices of the medieval church that were discarded at the Reformation. As a result, apologists for the Catholic Revival have tended to have a low opinion of Anglican doctrine and liturgical practice from the 1560s to the 1830s. An exception has been made for the Caroline divines and the eighteenth-century non-jurors, but no more. The teachings of the Tractarians and the innovations of the early ritualists cannot, however, be understood without a better appreciation of the nature of Anglicanism in the three centuries between the Reformation and the Oxford Movement. This chapter argues that neither Tractarianism nor ritualism burst upon a church wholly unprepared for them and that the Catholic Revival of the nineteenth century was not without precedent. It also discusses the status of Protestant establishments in England and Ireland on the eve of the Oxford Movement.
