Abstract and Keywords

This chapter explores the interaction of the Oxford Movement and its followers with Liberalism during the nineteenth century. It analyses the diverse interpretations of Liberalism early in the period, including the political and religious versions, and it traces both the tensions and the points of contact between Tractarianism and Liberal Protestantism. It describes the changing relations between Tractarianism and Liberal Protestantism as a move from conflict towards accommodation. It then proceeds to discuss Liberal Catholicism as a term which encompassed two very different movements, one associated with French Catholicism and influencing the leaders of the Oxford Movement, and the other expressing, later in the century, a development within Anglican High Churchmanship that owed much to Tractarianism but also encompassed key points of difference.

Keywords: Broad Church, incarnation, Liberalism, Liberal Catholicism, Liberal Protestantism, Tractarianism, French Catholicism
