Mission Center: The Episcopal Church: Community

‹‹ Return

The movement takes its name from a new appreciation of medieval romances, a literary genre involving tales of chivalric adventure. This turn to the culture of the middle ages can be seen in the beginnings of the liturgical movement. A revival of plainsong took place under Prosper Guéranger at the monastery of Solesmes. Romanticism influenced the theologians of the Oxford Movement and the Cambridge ecclesiologists. Its influence was also felt in the Episcopal Church. It lay behind the Ritual Controversy and the eventual recovery of certain aspects of catholic worship in the BCP.
