This chapter examines the contribution of priest and poet John Keble to the Catholic revival in Anglicanism in England during the 1830s. Keble presented his Assize sermon in July 1833 and took national apostasy as his theme. This sermon was considered the first regular remonstrance against the measures of the infidel party. The sermon was delivered during on the occasion of the passage of the Irish Church Temporalities Bill, which sought to reorganize and rationalize the bishoprics of the Church of Ireland and their endowments. Keble and other churchmen considered the bill a sacrilegious interference with church order by the secular power.
