The impact of the late eighteenth century European evangelical revival gave a new missionary zeal to a party within the Church of England.
This was followed by an equally significant catholic rebirth led by John Keble, Edward Bouverie Pusey and John Henry Newman, the latter a child of the evangelical revival.
Newman’s developing understanding of the nature of the Church eventually led him to the Church of Rome
Cardinal John Henry Newman
Rooted in a discovery of the teaching of the early church, catholic revival emphasised order, dignity and beauty in worship; and, together with the insights of evangelical leaders, an emphasis on holiness.
