Liberal Catholicism, Liberal Catholic Movement 

Liberal catholicism, as a theological development in Anglicanism, had its beginnings in the publication of Lux Mundi (1889), a collection of essays written by Oxford Anglican teachers and edited by Charles Gore. Lux Mundi took the doctrine of the Incarnation as a central theme for interpreting Christian faith in light of the conflicts which were of great importance at the end of the nineteenth century: evolution and the historical criticism of the Bible. Liberal catholicism was a movement which also sought to integrate the sacramental and ritualistic aspects of the Tractarian movement with such social concerns as urban poverty, industrialism, war, and the development of a Christian socialism.
