Abstract and Keywords

The historiography of the Oxford Movement has been characterized by contention and partisanship. Hagiographical accounts have been offset by a vigorous tradition of ‘anti-histories’. Both sides often used the past to support a current party or denominational position, a characteristic that was evident in the commemorations of the centenary of the Oxford Movement in 1933. Another key division occurred within the pro-Tractarian accounts between those who viewed the Oxford Movement primarily as the origin of the Anglo-Catholic revival within the Church of England and those who viewed it as finding its natural terminus in the conversion of its followers to the Roman Catholic Church.

Keywords: anti-histories, Anglo-Catholic, Anglicanism, Catholic Revival, Evangelical, High Church, historiography, Roman Catholic, Tractarianism
