Abstract and Keywords

The Oxford Movement had a profound academic and educational as well as theological and spiritual dimension. Its leaders and protagonists emerged as staunch upholders of Oxford’s doctrinal orthodoxy in the face of the challenge of external Whig political interference from without and theological heterodoxy from within. The so-called Oriel Noetics, whom Newman and others had owed so much, became regarded as the enemy. The controversies over Subscription and the admission of Dissenters to the university, the Hampden affair and issues of collegiate statute reform, which pitted both sides against each other, illustrated the extent to which the Tractarians regarded the battle for the soul of the university as a microcosm of the wider battle for the soul of the Church.

Keywords: Bampton Lectures, Dissenters, R. D. Hampden, Edward Hawkins, Hebdomadal Board, John Henry Newman, Oriel College, Oxford University, Thirty-Nine Articles, Richard Whately
