... Movement ( Tractarian Movement ) A movement of thought and doctrine within the Church of England, centred at Oxford, which began with the Assize Sermon on National Apostasy preached by John Keble in 1833 .

... Movement . A movement in the Church of England, beginning in the 19th cent., which had a profound impact on the theology, piety, and liturgy of Anglicanism . Its acknowledged leaders, John Keble , J. H. Newman , and E. B. Pusey , were all Oxford dons, and it is Keble's 1833 sermon on ‘National Apostasy’ (attacking the government's plan to suppress, without proper reference to the Church, ten Irish bishoprics) which is conventionally seen as the moment when the movement came to birth. The movement reacted against decline in church life, the...

... Movement . A movement ( 1833–45 ) in the C of E, centred in Oxford, which aimed at restoring High Church principles. Several causes contributed to its growth, including the decline of Church life, the spread of ‘ liberalism ’ in theology, and the question of Anglican identity raised by the removal of religious tests for State office in 1829 .

... movement . Founded by a group of clerical Oxford dons in the 1830s and 1840s, who sought to renew the Church of England through rediscovering its catholic inheritance.

Its starting-point is usually taken as Keble ’s Assize Sermon of 1833 . The end of the first phase came with the reception of Newman into the Roman catholic...

...Oxford Movement . This movement provoked an intensely emotional and generally hostile response in the Brontë family. It began in 1833 after John Keble ( 1792–1866 ) preached the Assize Sermon at Oxford on 14 July 1833 . Published as National Apostasy , it alerted the Church of England to the danger posed by the government's abolition of ten Irish bishoprics via the Irish Church Temporalities Bill, which became law on 14 August 1833 . Other laws seemed to open the way to Church disestablishment. Keble exhorted the Church to do everything possible to...

... Movement, the A movement within the Church of England, 1833–45 , ‘against Popery and Dissent’, aimed at returning to 17th-century principles, emphasizing the Catholicity of the Anglican Church. It is usually dated from 1833 , when Keble preached a famous sermon on National Apostasy in the University church at Oxford. Tracts for the Times followed (hence the alternative name Tractarianism), many by J. H. Newman, whose Tract XC ( 1841 ) caused such uproar that the series was abandoned. The movement effectively ended in 1845 , when both Newman and W....
