Excerpt from The Oxford Movement: Being a Selection From Tracts for the Times

IT will not be counted against me, I hope, as presumption, if, before proceeding to a short account of an ecclesiastical revolu tion, I make personal confession of such indifference to the matters in dispute as Gulliver may have had to the question of high and low heels, which excited to Civic strife the rival factions of Tramecksan and Slamecksan. No one who questions the validity of all religious dogmas can taste the excitement of taking sides in the collisions of contending dogmatists; he must needs remain as little a partisan as the average person who studies the Wars of the Roses, and finds small cause to sympathise with either York or Lancaster. Yet indifference to the subject-matter of the controversy does not imply lack of appreciation of its extreme interest, both by reason of the great personalities engaged, and of its influence on the Church to which they belonged, and which some of them forsook.
