The Anglican Church in the Nineteenth Century

Excerpt from The Anglican Church in the Nineteenth Century: Indicating Her Relative Position to Dissent in Every Form In investigating the position of a peculiar church, its present difficulties and their obvious consequences most emphatically invite attention; whence it has appeared that, objects in the foreground of the picture have been the immediate subjects of alteration, or chiefly affected by the progress of time and differences of opinion, while all the that which is in the background continues unvaried and established; and to this latter we may assign the whole of the past, as well as some portion of the present. Were we, in pursuance of our object, to limit ourselves to the principal theological opinions, and the existing and actual state of religious life, many of our statements and assertions would be deficient in strength, and perhaps but imperfectly comprehended. Our researches must therefore be extended to the directions and regulations both of the constitution and the worship, and more especially when it is remembered that these matters are often less generally known and frequently unattainable. In our endeavour to describe the peculiarities of the church as she now exists, we are necessitated to recur to her history, not only for her general character, but also for the sake of those directions and regulations to which we have adverted. A preliminary historical sketch could only contain facts within everybody's knowledge, with possibly here and there especial comment; and a more perfect performance would extend beyond our limits.
