Religious History

The Oxford Movement in England reaches its highest point when John Henry Newman's Tract No. 90 is published. The resulting controversy brings the series of tracts (begun in 1833) to an end. Not much later Newman resigns from his Anglican parish and, in 1845, he will convert to Roman Catholicism.

The Oxford Movement was a project of of High Church Anglicans who argued that "lost Christian traditions" be reintegrated into the Anglican Church. They regarded the Anglican Church as a third branch of the Catholic Church and the Oxford Movement eventually became Anglo-Catholicism.
