Patrimonial history: when the Oxford and Cambridge movements merged right after the Industrial Revolution
Noteworthy only because the result, Anglo-Catholicism, either accidentally or providentially served as a repository for fine RC practices chucked out after Vatican II which Pope Benedict is trying to bring back, a reason for the ordinariates to continue this tradition but on a sure foundation this time. A repository wrapped up in classic English prose. Derek writes (takes notes from a conference) about the early days when the theological not ceremonial Tractarians’ students and the Gothic Revival met up (‘I say! You seem to have got your chocolate in my peanut butter!’) and some of them tried to bring back Sarum ceremonial, an early phase of ACism.
