Here we have the origins of an orthodox High Churchmanship. Devotion, order, Church, episcopacy were its hallmarks. A concern for holiness of life was its currency.

Westcott (1825-1901), scholar and bishop, was associated with the Revised Version of the Bible which appeared in 1881. Knowledge about the text underlying the Bible was increasing through the publication of codices such as the Codex Sinaiticus. However, it was a much more significant step to acknowledge that the King James Bible contained inferior textual material; biblical authority itself was at stake. According to Westcott, Scripture was a field in which to exercise and to grow spiritually; to systematize and to idolize the text as a finished set of solutions was to reject the true gift.
