The Oxford Movement in Ireland, Wales and Scotland

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract / Description of output

While the Oxford Movement was an English development, it did exercise a significant influence upon the other nations within the United Kingdom. In Ireland and Wales, where the established United Church of England and Ireland held the allegiance of only a minority of the population, small but influential groups of high churchmen embraced Tractarian principles as a form of Church defence. In Scotland, Tractarian principles contributed to the modest revival of the small Scottish Episcopal Church, and also had unexpected consequences in promoting a Scoto-Catholic movement within the late nineteenth-century established Presbyterian Church of Scotland.
