Ritualism was one of the features of the Oxford Movement from its earliest manifestations. Much of the history of ritualism has concentrated on a few well-known ritualist churches in both London and the provinces and this has given a misleading impression of the relationship of the ritualist movement to the overall development of the Church of England and the other Anglican churches in the British Isles in the second half of the nineteenth century. This chapter re-examines the nature and extent of influence of Anglican ritualism before the passing of the Public Worship Regulation Act in 1874. As far as churches are concerned, the publication of guides to ritualist churches, which began with the Tourist's Church Guide in 1874, provides a relatively accurate guide to the geography of ritualism. This chapter looks at the Society of the Holy Cross and its members, the relationship between religious orders and ritualism, ritualism in the parishes from 1845 to 1874, ritualism in Scotland and Ireland, and comparative developments in Anglican churches overseas.
