The Fantasy of Reunion

Mark D. Chapman

Oxford University Press

This chapter describes the very different approach to ecumenism taken by Pusey in his open letter to John Keble, the first Eirenicon published in 1865. The changing nature of the Papacy under Pius IX with its increasing centralisation and calls for infallibility made many Anglo-Catholics fearful for the future of ecumenism. Nevertheless, they regarded it as important for a common front against the secularism and rationalism of the nineteenth century. By addressing the extensive correspondence and controversial writings between the leading protagonists, especially Pusey and Newman, this chapter chart their different perceptions of the catholicity of the Church and its impact on the possibility of reunion.
