Modern Decisions on Ritual, Vol. 1 of 2
Excerpt from Modern Decisions on Ritual, Vol. 1 of 2: And Kindred SubjectsThe following pages profess to give some account of the principal judicial decisions which have been pronounced during the last fifty years upon questions relating to the rites, ceremonies, ornaments, and decorations of the Church of England.These questions have arisen as a result of the movement begun at Oxford in the early part of the fourth decade of this century, which had for its primary object the revival of Catholic doctrine and practice in the Church. The movement appealed to antiquity, and many of those who took part in it naturally desired, along with ancient doctrine and ancient practice, to restore as much as possible of the beauty and symbolism of ancient worship and decoration. How far such a restoration was compatible with the Law of the Church as declared in her authoritative formularies, has been the question agitated in each of the cases which are the subject of this book. And when it is considered that for the decision of this question it has been usually necessary to ascertain the construction of documents two or three hundred years old, many of which had wholly or in part been for many years neglected or forgotten, and further, that on both sides the changes sought to be introduced were (rightly or wrongly) associated with doctrines deemed to be of vital importance, neither the variance of judicial opinion which has been manifested, nor the ardour with which litigation has been pursued, will excite much surprise.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
