The ''Oxford Movement'' was a religious movement which began in England in the 1830s. The Movement was related to the popular belief by some Anglican Leaders, that Anglicanism (the Religion formed after England's split from The Catholic Church in the 16th Century AD) – needed to adopt some of it's past Catholic Traditions. This was naturally met with resistance by many Anglican Clergy. The publishing of such beliefs by leading proponents of The Movement, did so while teaching at Oxford University – hence the ''official'' naming of The Movement as ''Oxford''. As a result of the publishing of The Movements goals, seen by many as a means to ''Romanize'' Anglicanism, the re-establishment of The Catholic Church in England began more formalized (whereas it was semi-outlawed to practice for many Centuries).
