The study that follows began when the seed of an idea was planted in the writer's mind regarding the remarkable similarity between certain aspects of the beginning phases of the Methodist Revival and the Oxford Movement. The vast differences between these two events in the history of the English church added an aspect of mystery to this idea. Indeed how could there be significant similarities between the free-wheeling Methodists and the highly liturgical, Romeward leaning High Church Anglicans of the Oxford Movement? The idea was spawned approximately three years ago; the exploration of the idea has taken the course of two summers of nearly singular attention to this project, together with many more during the pursuit of the writer's Divinity degree.
