This chapter describes the form of ecumenism stemming from a number of Roman Catholics under the influence of a group of converts led by Ambrose Phillipps de Lisle who began to re-imagine their newly adopted church as the historical embodiment of the great undivided western church of medieval Christendom. Their profound influence on religious aesthetics and taste, which was dominated by the vision of the great pioneer of the Gothic Revival, the architect and designer, A. W N. Pugin, quickly spread beyond their own church, with some members of the Church of England, including F. G. Lee, reconceiving their own church in similar terms, often accompanied by a revival of medieval ritual. It describes the history of the first major ecumenical organisation with significant support from the two churches, the Association for the Promotion of the Unity of Christendom.
