Oxford Movement, The 

The Oxford Movement encouraged a recovery of the beauty of the church's worship in the external forms of liturgical ceremonies, vestments, and music. It led to a renewed appreciation for the church's catholic heritage and tradition, the importance of the apostolic ministry and the sacraments, the recovery of Anglican spiritual life, the revival of monastic life in the Anglican Communion, and appreciation for the ancient doctrines, discipline, and devotional practices of the church. It inspired the Library of the Fathers, which included English translations of patristic works. The first volume was Pusey's translation of Augustine's Confessions (1838), with a preface by Pusey on the significance of patristic study. The movement also led to the liberal catholic movement at the end of the nineteenth century.
