Anglicans produced distinctive Victorian art and architecture, both in Britain and throughout the complex contexts of the British Empire. The visual arts and the transformation of sacred spaces through the rediscovery of traditional crafts and motifs alongside the implementation of new materials and techniques constituted a unique cultural contribution. In churches, galleries, and many global public and private spaces, nineteenth-century art continues to assert a vast legacy. Key characteristics of the Church of England’s Victorian approaches to the arts include the Gothic Revival, Pre-Raphaelitism, and diverse quests undertaken by practitioners ranging from William Butterfield to John Byam Liston Shaw to articulate the beauty of holiness.
