Abstract and Keywords

In this chapter the author demonstrates that while the Oxford Movement was an English development, it also exercised a significant influence upon the other nations within the United Kingdom. In Ireland and Wales, where the established United Church of England and Ireland held the allegiance of only a minority of the population, small but influential groups of High Churchmen embraced Tractarian principles as a form of Church defence. In Scotland, Tractarian principles contributed to the modest revival of the small Scottish Episcopal Church, and also had unexpected consequences in promoting a Scoto-Catholic movement within the late nineteenth-century established Presbyterian Church of Scotland.

Keywords: Celtic fringe, New Reformation, Church principles, devotional revolution, Dissent, ancient British Church, Jacobites, Scottish Episcopal Church, Disruption of the Church of Scotland, Scoto-Catholic movement
