This chapter discusses the legacy of the Oxford Movement. It suggests that the significance of the movement is not exhausted by its immediate reference. This is because it was established in response to a threat to the Church of England and it was a defensive reaction aimed at protecting the Church from interference from political reformers. The movement and the Catholic revival transformed the self-understanding and self-expression of Anglicanism and they encouraged a view of the Church as a divine society striving to live by the sustaining mystery of the love and grace of God.
