Chapter Summary

The Tractarians were orators. They would probably object to the use of this term, for it evoked what they saw as the excesses of Evangelical preaching and ran counter to the notion of "reserve" that was central to the ethos of the Oxford Movement. This chapter focuses on the Tractarians' oratory, the larger body of speeches by those associated with the Movement. It also focuses on twelve men who contributed to the Tracts for the Times and published significant numbers of speeches. Greatest attention will be given to the three who are generally regarded as the central figures of the Movement-John Henry Newman, John Keble, and E.B. Pusey-along with Benjamin Harrison, Henry Edward Manning, and Isaac Williams. The chapter discusses the theory of sacred rhetoric, specifically the nature of the Sermon. It then considers the extent to which the Tractarians' practices conformed to the theories, beginning with their lectures.
