Abstract and Keywords

In this chapter the author explores the relationship between the Oxford Movement and liturgical practice. From the beginnings of the Movement in the 1830s, John Henry Newman and other early leaders perceived a danger in an overemphasis on the ceremonial, an attitude that continued to be shared by mainstream Tractarianism after 1845. The 1860s proved to be a pivotal decade, however, with a growing use of eucharistic vestments, incense, and other practices that had been absent in earlier decades. The author analyses the reasons for this change of emphasis, and the relationship between the newer Ritualism and the original aims and methods of the Movement, along with the response of their opponents.

Keywords: ceremonial, 1860s, vestments, incense, Ritualism, opponents
