Abstract and Keywords

This article explores the controversial Oxford Movement, which sought to reform the teaching and pastoral practice of the Church of England. It emphasizes the key role of the sermon, given the fact most of the movement’s leading figures were at one time or another parish priests. The sermons of a handful of leaders are considered as well as the preaching of some of the more minor Tractarian clergy. Of all the published sermons of the Oxford Movement, those of Newman proved to be the most enduring and influential, read as much for their literary style as for their theological content.

Keywords: Oxford Movement, preaching, sermons, Church of England, religious reform, parish priests, Newman
