Book Description

First Sentence
The extraordinary career of the last Prince Bishop of Durham, like almost everything else about the early nineteenth-century High Church movement, had its roots in the eighteenth-century circle surrounding William Stevens: an alliance of prosperous lay churchmen from mercantile, financial and legal backgrounds and campaigning High Church clergy. Read the first page

Long overdue 20 Feb. 2011
By Scriblerus - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Since at least the rise of the Oxford Movement--though they may have acquired the disposition from the early Evangelical Movement--the High Church movement of the 18th and early 19th centuries have been unjustly overlooked and discounted. This rich biography corrects that long-standing misrepresentation with a clear, thorough, and eloquent account of the life of one of the principle High Churchmen of the early 19th century. Anyone interested in Anglican history or in the culture of early 19th Century England will find this an invaluable text.
