This chapter examines the contribution of Bishop of Lincoln Edward King to the Catholic revival in England during the 1880s. During his stay at the University of Oxford, he was influenced by two of the leaders of the Oxford Movement, Charles Marriott and R. W. Church, who was closely allied to the Tractarians. Marriott's concern for the poor and his ability to draw out the awkward and the shy were particularly significant for influencing King. And while the character of Oxford was changing from what it had been in the heyday of the Oxford Movement, King allied himself with the Church Party and was assiduous in his religious duties. This chapter also discusses the Lincoln Judgement.
