The interest that was to emerge in the Victorian period in a revival of ceremonial in public worship was not without precedent in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. The view that an interest in ceremonial was not part of the earliest phase of the Oxford Movement is also one that requires some careful modification. This chapter examines the relationship of Victorian ritualism to other High–Church developments in the 1830s and relates both to the wider aesthetic and antiquarian movements that were to provide the climate in which a reassessment of traditional Anglican spirituality proved such an attraction for a significant number of High–Churchmen, both clergy and laity. In addition to antiquarianism, medievalism, and romanticism, the Oxford Movement and the English Reformation are discussed, along with Tractarianism, ecclesiology, and ritualism and non-Anglican influences on Anglican ritualism.
