  High church - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"High Church" is a term that may now be used in speaking of viewpoints within a number of denominations of Protestant Christianity in general, but it is one which has traditionally been employed in Churches associated with the Anglican tradition in particular.
In the 17th century, the term "High Church" was a used to describe those divines and laity who placed a "high" emphasis on complete adherence to the Established Church position, including some elements that involved ritual or liturgical practice inherited from the Early Church or Undivided Church.
From the mid-19th century onward, the term "High Church" came to refer increasingly to an avowedly Anglo-Catholic liturgical and exclusivist or even triumphalist position within the English Church, while the remaining Latitudinarians were referred to as being Broad Church, and the re-emergent Evangelical party was dubbed Low Church.

Supporters of the "high church" stance emphasize that it has to do with holiness, sanctity, and respect for God, Jesus, and the Church itself, and that it is "catholic" primarily in its attempt to be "universal", not that it is solely an attempt to ally with Rome and reject Protestantism.
Today, the primary source of separation between high church Anglo-Catholicism and the Roman Catholic Church itself is the liberal attitude taken by many in the Anglican communion regarding issues which to the Catholic Church are still anathema, such as the ordination of women, and, increasingly, the calls for the acceptance and ordination of homosexuals.
By the 19th century, "high church" referred exclusively to the avowedly Anglo-Catholic position in the English church, while the latitudinarians were referred to as Broad church, and the emergent Evangelical movement was dubbed Low church.

High Churchmen had an intense dislike for this decision; they were afraid that unliturgical services would succeed in ousting the liturgy.] But this uniformity did not mean that the Church was tied to the 1662 Prayer Book till Parliament decided to sanction changes, or that the liturgy could not develop and expand.
The liturgists and High Churchmen in general had not much interest in hymns; the only collections of any size in popular use, which they knew, were the metrical psalms of Sternhold and Hopkins, dating from 1562, and the Evangelical hymnals, beginning with John Wesley’s collection in 1737.
To the liturgists uniformity was the safeguard necessary for the continued existence of the liturgy in England as the prayer of the Church; it ensured that clergy and laity alike were nourished on the riches of liturgical worship, a worship which is a sine qua non of the Christian life.

 The Difference Between Low Church and High Church
From Webster's Dictionary: "Low Church (1710) tending esp. in Anglican worship to minimize emphasis on the priesthood, sacraments, and the ceremonial in worship and often to emphasize evangelical principles." By contrast: "High Church (1687) tending esp. in Anglican worship to stress the sacerdotal [priestly], liturgical, ceremonial, traditional, and Catholic elements in worship."
John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist tradition, was sometimes accused by his detractors of being "low church" because of his field preaching and training of lay-preachers outside the confines of normal church structure and structures.

 Restoration Quarterly (The High Church Roots of John Wesley's Appeal to Primitive Christianity)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
One instance of Wesley's use of the expression "Primitive Church" is especially significant in that it was written in 1784, in the twilight of Wesley's life.
This early acquaintance with the High Church tradition in the form of the Non-Jurors further establishes and strengthens the connection between Wesley's desire for restitution of the ancient church and that High Church part of Anglicanism which had made this so central a theme.
In fact, with Samuel Wesley's High Churchism and his role in the Religious Societies movement, and with Susanna's High Churchism and status as a Non-Juror, it would be surprising if High Church primitivism was not a frequent topic of study and discussion in the Wesley home.

Yet while there's growing evidence church leaders were involved in the scandal, he says, prosecutors have a long way to go to prove criminal intent.
Yet in most states, convicting a church official of conspiracy or aiding-and-abetting would require prosecutors to prove that "he had, as his purpose, that the crime would be repeated - that a child would be harmed," says Robert Blakey, a former prosecutor who is now a law professor at Notre Dame in Indiana.

 High Church: Tractarianism
There were exactly 90 Tracts, the majority written by Newman, arguing in general that the truth of the doctrines of the Church of England rested on the modern church's position as the direct descendant of the church established by the Apostles.
Pretty obviously, such an argument was a conservative answer to the various contemporary challenges to the authority of religion in general, Christianity in particular, and specifically Anglicanism Catholicism, fueled by the same need for reassurance as was the Evangelical revival.
The Ecclesiological movement, which wanted more ritual and religious decoration in churches and which closely associated with the Gothic Revival, was a natural partner to Tractarianism, for both movements looked back to the Middle Ages as a time when the Church met the needs of its parishioners both religiously and aesthetically.
