Abstract and Keywords

From its inception the Oxford Movement was intended to be as much practical as theoretical. In this chapter the author explores the nature and extent of Tractarianism beyond Oxford. The chapter provides a statistical analysis of its progress which is followed by examinations of its liturgical life, including the promotion of the daily service, the creation of eucharistic communities at the heart of its parishes, and the consequent restoration and reordering of church buildings and their furnishings. The chapter discusses the introduction of the practice of confession and the expansion of parochial education, and also gives an evaluation of the opposition Tractarians could encounter.

Keywords: statistical analysis, liturgical life, daily service, eucharistic communities, buildings, furnishings, confession, education, opposition
