(p.241) 12 Reform and Liberalism
Charles James Fox

L. G. Mitchell

Oxford University Press

Fox very quickly became the subject of hagiography. From the Foxite cults of the early 19th century to the biographies written by 20th-century Liberals in search of ancestors, the line of argument was clear. Fox was to be hailed as a keen reformer in religious and political life, and his arguments on these issues contributed mightily to the formation of the liberal creed of subsequent centuries. In fact, although there are strong liberal themes in much of what Fox said and wrote, he was never the reformer that later generations would have wished him to be.
