Abstract and Keywords

In this chapter the author examines the role of Anglo-Catholicism in the revision process between the Royal Commission on Ecclesiastical Discipline and the rejection of the 1928 Prayer Book in Parliament. The early twentieth-century project of Prayer Book revision in England in some ways indicated the growing recognition and acceptance of Anglo-Catholicism within the wider Church. However, as the process became increasingly controversial with deliberations over reservation and the eucharistic rite, a tension developed amongst some Anglo-Catholics between the sacramental mission of the party and Church loyalty and obedience. Furthermore, theological and liturgical divisions within the party itself were amplified.
