Library of Anglo-Catholic Theology
The Library of Anglo-Catholic Theology (published by John Henry Parker) was a series of 19th-century editions of theological works by Church of England writers, devoted as the title suggests to significant Anglo-Catholic figures. It brought back into print a number of works from the 17th century, concentrating though not exclusively on the Caroline Divines. The publication of the Library, from 1841, was connected with the Oxford Movement which had begun in 1833; some of the editors, such as William John Copeland and Charles Crawley were clearly identified with the Movement. However the interests of the Library diverged early from those of the Tractarians. A total of 95 volumes by 20 writers were published over a dozen years; the plan, originally, had been to include 53 authors.
