Abstract and Keywords

This chapter examines four initial facets of mission that emerged from the Oxford Movement as dimensions of later Anglo-Catholicism in the Anglican Communion. These were first, Anglo-Catholic infiltration of the High Church Society for the Propagation of the Gospel; second, colonial missions to settler communities in the British Empire; third, institutional missions to India, such as the Oxford Mission to Calcutta; and fourth, a unique and early example of an enculturated mission in India associated with the Society of St John the Evangelist. The use of religious communities is highlighted, including an example of indigenous non-British mission in the Melanesian Brotherhood.

Keywords: Society for the Propagation of the Gospel, Universities’ Mission to Central Africa, Cambridge Mission to Delhi, Oxford Mission to Calcutta, parish mission, London, Society of St John the Evangelist, India
