Abstract and Keywords
The leaders of the Oxford Movement were supported by a cast of friends and disciples who made important contributions to the ideas and initiatives associated with the Movement. Most of them, until recently, have been given little attention by historians. However, recent studies of these personalities and their active involvement in Tractarian ventures have offered a more complete and complex perspective of the range of the Movement’s programmes and activities. Among those activities, of particular relevance was the work of the London Tractarians in the field of education, where they played a vital role in the extraordinary development of the National Society for the Education of the Poor in the late 1830s and 1840s.
Keywords: British Critic, Charles Marriot, Isaac Williams, Lyra Apostolica, National Society for the Education of the Poor, Library of Anglo-Catholic Theology, Library of the Fathers, London Tractarians, Samuel Francis Wood
