Book Description

11 April 2002
This study examines the significance of the influential High Church 'Hackney Phalanx' at the beginning of the nineteenth century, and opens up a little-explored area of Anglican history. Drawing extensively upon original correspondence, Elizabeth Varley reconstructs the work of the Hackney Phalanx and their defence of traditional Anglican ascendancy against the forces of political and religious reform during the final crisis of the English confessional state. The study focuses upon William Van Mildert, Bishop of Durham from 1826–36, and shows that, while Van Mildert's influence as 'Prince Bishop' bore little resemblance to his medieval forebears, he made effective use of it to cause considerable irritation to the Whig establishment of the day, local and national. Varley brings skilfully to life many of the tensions of that time - political and ecclesiastical - which culminated in the Catholic Emancipation Act of 1829 and the passing of the Parliamentary Reform Bill in 1832.

Inside This Book (Learn More)
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

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.
