Excerpt from The Mind of the Oxford Movement

In a library of modern religious thought, no apology will be needed for the inclusion of illustrations from the thought of the Oxford Movement.

Excerpt from The Mind of the Oxford Movement But a political impetus does not create religious thought. It affords it opportunity, gives it point and purpose, establishes it as effective. The high Anglicanism of the Oxford Movement was not quite identical with the high Anglicanism which had existed for two hundred years and more. But the difference was not the result of the political crisis. The power of the Movement s religious ideas sprang from somewhere deeper in men s souls and minds than their contemporary ideas of ecclesiastical expediency.
