A Few Plain Words about Meditation (3rd edition) in Practical Tracts




Shoults Eb 1865 S



London: Church Printing Co.


The Shoults Collection contains many volumes of small pamphlets bound together and given the generic title ‘Church Tracts’. Shoults was a curate who worked in four slum parishes of London: Walworth, Bunhill Row, Shoreditch, and Lombard Street. He favoured services that were ritualistic, such as a daily Eucharist, incense, altar lights, and colourful vestments. This was all part of a 19th century movement to rejuvenate and revitalise the Church of England. Alexander Heriot Mackonochie (1825-1887) was one of the leading members of the broader Catholic revival, and for carrying out ritualist practices at St Alban’s, Holborn, he was prosecuted and banned from preaching. Here is a third edition copy of his Meditation.
