About the Cyclopedia

Gore, Charles

(1853–1932). B. Wimbledon, Eng.: bp. Worcester 1902, Birmingham 1905, Oxford 1911; under his influence the Oxford* Movement underwent changes opposed by old school Tractarians (see Tractarianism); held kenotic view that the Lord so restrained His deity as to become subject to all human limitations. Lux mundi, ed. by him, tried to bring the Christian creed “into its right relation to the modern growth of knowledge, scientific, historic, critical; and to modern problems of politics and ethics”; it helped the High Ch. movement develop along modernistic lines. See also Christian Social Union; Kenosis.
