Abstract and Keywords

Numbers 74, 76, 78, and 81, respectively, of the Tracts for the Times, considered apostolic succession, baptismal regeneration, the Vincentian canon,and eucharistic sacrifice. The Tracts’ extensive catenae, from seventeenth- and eighteenth-century authorities, reflected an enduring High Church preoccupation with following ‘the old paths’ (Jeremiah 6:16), most notably of the ante-Nicene ‘Primitive Church’. Based upon deep patristic learning and antiquarian scholarship, such interest found influential expression through doctrine, liturgy, devotional observance, and in attitudes to Church discipline and order. This chapter analyses early eighteenth-century High Churchmanship in both its political and theological aspects, conforming and Nonjuring. It shows how this High Churchmanship served as a precursor of, influence on, and treasure store for the Oxford Movement.

Keywords: baptism, excommunication, episcopacy, eucharist, heresy, Jacobitism, Nonjuror, schism, Toryism
