This chapter demonstrates a significant third strand in the liturgical outlook of Anglicans between 1660 and 1840. This was an attempt to reorder Anglican churches but in a way which tried to create a more even balance between altar and pulpit, sacrament and preaching, with the result that churches reordered in this way presented a better model of liturgical unity than either the compartmentalised buildings of the early 17th century or the more radical experiments of the 18th century. This new movement, which can be seen as a return to liturgical orthodoxy, or conservative principles of liturgical rearrangement, began during the late 17th century but did not really have a major impact on the Church of England until the late 18th or early 19th centuries. By the 1820s it had come to dominate the liturgical outlook of most Anglicans, yet it was short-lived, being quickly overtaken by the liturgical views of the ecclesiologists.
