Abstract and Keywords

During the period between 1833 and 1845 the Oxford Movement was widely discussed in Western European countries. The via media, as Newman understood it, was received with great suspicion. Roman Catholics continued to consider Anglicanism as a heresy, but hailed the Oxford Movement as a means to lead the Church of England back to the mother Church in Rome. Continental Protestants feared that the Oxford Movement might destroy the essence of the Protestant churches. Although the criticism was not universal, it was brought forward by a variety of schools and the nature of the debate served as a mirror of the theological pluralism of the time.

Keywords: Europe, Romanticism, Enlightenment, Germany, Belgium, France, Protestantism, papacy, Puseyism, justification by faith
