With the Assize sermon on "National Apostasy" by John Keble, on July 14, 1833, the Oxford Movement was born. The religious opinions and principles of the Movement toward High Church principles in opposition to liberalizing and evangelical tendencies and emphasizing the principles of primitive and patristic Christianity as well as the historic and catholic character of the church, were given in a series of 90 papers called the Tracts for the Times, published in Oxford from 1833 to 1841.

Pope John Paul II signed the document acknowledging he practiced the Christian virtues in a heroic degree and declared him Venerable, January 22, 1991. At the beginning of 2008, in preparation for his beatification, the Vatican requested that his remains be transferred to the chapel of the Oratory of Birmingham and placed in a marble sarcophagus so that the faithful can venerate them more easily (3). On July 3, 2009, the pope authorized the publication of the decree of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints concerning a miracle attributed to his intercession. In a ceremony celebrated on September 19, 2010, in Birmingham, England, Pope Benedict XVI declared him a blessed. On February 12, 2019, Pope Francis authorized the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints to promulgate the decree of his canonization.
