Chapter Summary

This chapter explores broad church conceptions of the established Churches in Great Britain as definers of a British national culture and national mission during the second half of the long nineteenth century. This period marked the height of the United Kingdom's global power and influence—when its industrial economy was pre-eminent in the world, its merchant marine carried the lion's share of world commerce and its navy dominated the seas. The chapter discusses how leading broad church thinkers—among them F.D.Maurice, J.R. Seeley, A.P. Stanley,Matthew Arnold, Brooke FossWestcott, andMaxMuller in the Church of England, and NormanMacLeod, John Caird, and John Tulloch in the Church of Scotland—maintained that the national Churches were to provide moral education, encourage intellectual cultivation, promote an ideal of social service, and strengthen national unity.
