Description :
Members of the Church of England who stress the more Catholic aspects of Anglicanism have traditionally been referred to as 'High Church'. The high church or Anglo-Catholic movement emphasised tradition, the authority of the church, the sacraments, and dignified liturgical worship. During the 19th century this movement saw a revival of ritual to express ancient church traditions and symbolise Catholic teaching on the sacraments. In South Australia many Anglican clergy were influenced by Anglo-Catholicism. From the 1860s a growing number of churches adopted new styles of worship and more elaborate church decoration. These changes included more frequent celebration of holy communion, the observance of holy days and seasons such as Lent, the placing of candles on the altar, and the wearing of coloured vestments by the clergy. In 1869 St Paul's in Pulteney Street was the first church in Adelaide to have a choir of boys and men dressed in vestments, causing much debate at the time. When the Green and gold cookery book was compiled in 1923 as part of the fund-raising effort towards establishing King's College, the combined Baptist and Congregational school for boys, as well as a recipe for 'Scripture cake' it contained this recipe, presumably named for the added extra of raspberry jam. 'Putting on the jam' - a reference to snobbishness - possibly refers to an element of snobbery associated with high church practices.
