The Oxford Tractarians represented the link between the old-fashioned high churchmen of the 18th century and the later Victorian ritualists. The Cambridge Ecclesiologists undoubtedly brought a new perspective to Anglican Church architecture and liturgy, but it was one which took a considerable degree of time to implement, to such an extent that some churches were largely untouched by it. Nevertheless, when the changes did finally succeed in transforming the liturgical life of the Church of England in a very radical, though at the same time rather reactionary, manner, they themselves became the accepted Anglican norm for another century, to such an extent that recent attempts to modify them have been condemned as an attack on a historical legacy. This chapter puts the liturgical changes of the 19th century into perspective, reassesses the speed with which they were carried out, and challenges some of the assumptions that have been made.
