J. M. Neale and the Quest for Sobornost


Oxford University Press

Neale’s Anglo–Catholicism led him to gain an interest in the church of Fathers and in the movement to recall their teachings for the Victorian Church. There were both popular and personal factors leading to Neale’s interest in the Eastern Church. His endorsement of the branch theory of the Church, his contact with William Palmer, his encounter with Count Montalembert, the congeniality of icon veneration all helped to bring Neale closer to the Orhodox communion, and strengthened his resolve to educate the Anglican communion.

Keywords:   Allchin, William Palmer, Eastern Church, Anglo–Catholicism, branch theory, Count Montalembert, icons
