9781859280409: Anatomy of a Controversy: The Debate over 'Essays and Reviews' 1860–64 (The Nineteenth Century Series)

Controversy, especially religious controversy, was the great spectator sport of Victorian England. This work is a study of the biggest and best of Victorian religious controversies. Essays and Reviews (1860) was a composite volume of seven authors (six of them Anglican clergymen) which brought England its first serious exposure to biblical criticism. It evoked a controversy lasting four years, including articles in newspapers, magazines and reviews, clerical and episcopal censures, a torrent of tracts, pamphlets and sermons, followed by weightier tomes (and reviews of all these), prosecution for heresy in the ecclesiastical courts, appeal to the highest secular court, condemnation by the Convocation of the clergy and a debate in Parliament. Essays and Reviews was the culmination and final act of the Broad Church movement. Outwardly the conflict ended inconclusively; at a deeper level, it marked the exhaustion both of the Broad Church and of Anglican orthodoxy and the commencement of an era of religious doubt. This controversy illustrates the pathology of Victorian religion in its demonstration of the propensity to controvert and the methods of controversialists. It is both the greatest Victorian crisis of faith and the best case study of Victorian religious controversy.

About the Author:

Josef L. Altholz, University of Minnesota, USA

Review:

'His writing is as crisp and inviting as nineteenth-century prose was long-winded and byzantine. He also has an enviable grasp of the intricacies of journalistic warfare in Victorian Britain.' Church History 'Exactly the right scholar has taken up this fascinating episode in the history of Victorian religion, and he has detailed it with exactly the right blend of understanding and detachment. This is religious, social and literary criticism as it ought to be.' Nineteenth-Century Literature In recent years no American scholar has done more than Josef Altholz to illuminate the Victorian concern with religion fro late twentieth-century readers.' Nineteenth Century Prose
