[Inserted in Margin: Oxford Movement: A movement within] the church of England, initiated at Oxford in 1833 under the leadership of John Henry Newman, John Keble, Edward B. Pusey and others. In opposition to the prevailing latitudinarian tendencies of the day, these men insisted upon the historic significance of the church as "more than a merely human institution" and as possessing "privleges [privileges] sacraments, a ministry, ordained by Christ."
