Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Community

‹‹ Return

The term is applied to an intellectual and cultural development which flourished in western Europe and North America in the late-eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. It was largely a reaction against the Enlightenment and the neo-classicism which accompanied the Enlightenment. In place of the earlier emphasis on reason, order, and mechanism there came to be an emphasis on feeling, mystery, the transcendent, vitality, the individual, and the brooding power of nature. Romantic religion upheld the continuity of tradition and community.
