Definition of Low Churchman in US English:

Low Churchman


  • See Low Church

    • ‘Naturally the Low Churchmen resented an appellation with which this suggestion of unworthy motives was associated.’
    • ‘High Church clergy and laity were often termed "high and dry", in reference to their traditional "high" attitude with regard to political position of the Church in England, and "dry" faith, which was accompanied by an austere but decorous mode of worship, as reflective of their idea of an orderly and dignified churchmanship against the rantings of the low churchmen that their Cavalier ancestors had defeated.’
