Item Description...
A revised and enlarged edition of the most powerful and polemical critique of the Anglo-Catholicism movement. This penetrating and highly readable study has established itself over the years as the standard text on the subject. Rising in the wake of the Oxford Movement, Anglo-Catholicism can be seen as an attempt to catholicise the Church of England - to see its doctrines as reflecting historic Christendom and bringing its services into line with Catholic tradition. Early followers were persecuted, but became famous for their work and for breaking down the social divisions associated with the Church. The Anglo-Catholic Movement indelibly changed the ethos of Anglicanism with the foundation of religious orders, overseas missions, theological colleges and public schools, promoting new social doctrines often associated with socialist ideas. 'Anglo-Catholicism' traces the movement from the origins to the heyday in the 1920s and 1930s. It is the first study which analyses it from the sociological point of view. The book concentrates in the interwar period and the decline of the movement to the present time, showing now the ambiguities and tensions originated and the way they have been dealt with over the years. This revised edition contains a new chapter examining the impact of women's ordination to priesthood on the movement. Dr William S. F. Pickering has been an Anglican priest since 1950. He was for twenty years a lecturer in Sociology at the University of Newcastle upon Tyne. He is currently the General Secretary of the British Centre for Durkheimian Studies, at Oxford University.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Filling a gap in Anglo-Catholic studies  Aug 10, 2009
The author himself notes that there are quite a few works on the Oxford Movement, but notices that once the Tracts for the Times cease and Newman converts to Catholicism there is not much available on Anglo-Catholicism. For that alone this work is useful, though it is not intended to be a comprehensive history of thelogical representation of Anglo-Catholicism since the mid 1800s. The author first asks what is Anglo-Catholicism, then discusses the early days of the movement as well as its heyday between the world wars. Then the missional aspect of the movement which it picked up from Evangelicals. Its success and notable achievements in the slums of England are assessed and then its ambiguities. A subsection of one chapter is entitled "Catholic or not Catholic?" and this is a question many of us who are not Anglo-Catholic are asking. Ambiguity over sexuality is addressed as are the well known charges of homosexuality amongst its adherents. The final section addresses the Anglo-Catholic charges of ambiguity and analyzes Anglo-Catholicism's effect on the Church of England and even Roman Catholicism. Issues such as Charismaticism, Vatican II and the ordination of women are also discussed.

You may not be pleased with the conclusions but the work is worth reading due to its comprehensive nature.
