Overview

In this collection of new and revised essays Owen Chadwick, perhaps the most distinguished living historian of religion, writes on various aspects of the Oxford Movement and the English Church in the Victorian era. Along with studies of Newman, Liddon, Edward King and Henri Bremond are included more general essays surveying the reaction of the Established Church and on the nature of Catholicism. In particular, the revision of the long-unobtainable introductory essay, The Mind of the Oxford Movement, illustrates once again the profound contribution Owen Chadwick has made to our understanding of religion in Britain in the nineteenth century.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...the collection is interesting to read. The author is a great scholar and a superb writer." John R. Griffin, The Catholic History Review

"Owen Chadwick's essay, 'The Mind of the Oxford Movement,' published in 1960 as the introduction to a collection of sources under that title, became a minor classic of Victorian religious history. There has been a demand for the essay to be reprinted independently, disencumbered of appendages no longer useful. The Spirit of the Oxford Movement meets that demand by combining it with the republication of a number of other essays, lectures, and reviews written between 1954 and 1987 and now not easily accessible. These essays have been somewhat revised and the volume given a title also somewhat revised but in fact more appropriate." Victorian Studies

"...few would doubt the value of this collection....serves to demonstrate Chadwick's mastery of a range of disciplines. For this book opens new avenues into an understanding of the minds behind the Oxford Movement." William T. Gibson, Albion

"The range of subjects in the tantalizing and suggestive collection provides material of interest to specialists and beginners alike." Dale A. Johnson, Religious Studies Review
