The beginning of the Oxford Movement in the early nineteenth century signalled a religious revival that was to have far-reaching effects on the Church of England: the continuity and catholic identity of Anglicanism was affirmed, sacramental worship was restored to a central place in Anglican devotion, and religious orders were revived. Visions Glorious studies the Catholic revival in Anglicanism in the nineteenth century and explores some of the major themes and personalities involved, focusing on the close relationship between theology and sacramental spirituality that was at the heart of the movement. Examining the beliefs of major figures such as Newman, Pusey and Keble, this scholarly critique of the Oxford Movement by the present chaplain of Keble College makes a contribution to the renewal of the Catholic tradition in Anglicanism today.
