Launched in 1833, the Oxford or Tractarian Movement aimed to revive the Church of England as a moral force and bring its ritual closer to that of Catholicism. This book shows how its principles shaped the lives and works of four leading followers: the merchant William Gibbs, the architect William Butterfield, the banker Thomas Heywood and the theatre director Lilian Baylis. Its examination of the role of faith in a capitalist society is as relevant today as in the 19th century.
