Abstract and Keywords

This chapter discusses the impact of the Oxford Movement on relationships between the different Churches. It emphasizes the importance to the Oxford Movement of a ‘temporal’ understanding of catholicity which located the authority of the Church in the undivided Church of the first five centuries. During the Tractarian period most authors retained a strong anti-Romanism and regarded the Church of England as the true heir of the patristic Church. In succeeding years a number of enthusiasts inspired by the Oxford Movement within the Church of England, as well as from other churches, sought reunion, even though they met with little success.

Keywords: ecumenism, apostolic succession, catholicity, William Palmer, John Henry Newman, primitive church, E. B. Pusey, Association for the Promotion of the Unity of Christendom, First Vatican Council
