The Fantasy of Reunion

Mark D. Chapman

Oxford University Press

This chapter continues the story into the period of the Council itself, with detailed discussions of the correspondence between Forbes, Pusey and the Belgian Jesuit theologian, Victor de Buck, who played a key role in transmitting the ideas of the Anglo-Catholics to Rome. In addition, it discusses the dealings between Anglicans, including Gerard Cobb, and the opponents of Infallibility among the Roman Catholics, especially Ignaz von Döllinger, the doyen of German Church historians and a long time correspondent of Pusey. It concludes with an exposition of the doctrinal propositions that were eventually presented, but which sank without trace in the changed political and ecclesiastical circumstances of the time. There was a huge gulf between catholic-minded Anglicans and those who clamoured for a declaration of infallibility. Enthusiasts for reunion were forced to think again about whether there could ever be any hope for future reconciliation between the churches.
