The article analyzes the largest studies of the history of the Oxford (Tractarian) movement, which were published in the early XXI century. During this relatively short period of time, appeared a significant number of important works, shedding light on various aspects of the development of Tractarianism as a serious phenomenon not only of religious, but also of social and cultural life of the Victorian era. They can be divided into two large groups. First, there are works that examine the processes of internal development of the Oxford movement. S. Skinner was able convincingly to refute the views about its “other-worldliness”, reconstructing the social program of Tractarianism. J. Pereiro put forward as a key to understanding the Oxford movement the concept of its particular ethos. J. Herring studied in detail the activities of tractarians at the parish level and criticized the traditional view that the ritualist movement of the second half of the nineteenth century was a logical continuation of the Oxford movement. Secondly, in a number of publications (the monograph “The Oxford movement: Europe and the wider world, 1830-1930”, “The Oxford Handbook to the Oxford movement”, studies of S. Brown and F. Morris) an attempt is made to expand the horizons of the analysis of Tractarianism, expressed in studying the reaction to it in continental Europe and in the English-speaking world, in the search for typologically similar phenomena in England and abroad. As a result of the appearance of the studies considered in this article, many little-known aspects of the history of Tractarianism have been clarified, and the tendency to represent the Oxford movement as a phenomenon exclusively of Church history, which prevailed until the last quarter of the past century, has been cempletely overcome.
