Anglo-Catholicism

 

a movement within the Anglican Church for the return to Catholicism, but without merging with the Roman Catholic Church. It began on the eve of the English Bourgeois Revolution in the 17th century as an anti-Puritan movement; it reappeared in the so-called Oxford movement of the 1830’s and 1840’s. Anglo-Catholicism opposes religious modernism and state intervention in the affairs of the church. The Anglo-Catholics are the most conservative group of Anglicans, with many supporters among the English aristocracy.
