Hawksmoor and Vanbrugh were more than mere disciples of Wren; they in fact "freely and inventively develop his vigorous, expansive, Anglicanized-baroque style, with great insistence upon movement, drama, and display" (The Eighteenth Century: The Intellectual and Cultural Context of English Literature 1700-1789). Hawksmoor's Roman Mausoleum (1729-38) on the grounds of Castle Howard is considered to be one of his finest achievements. He sometimes adopted the Gothic manner, anticipating Walpole and other true Gothic revivalists, evident in the spires and crockets of of the new quadrangle at All Souls' College, Oxford (1700-34). Apart from the Roman Mausoleum, the best Hawksmoor architecture is represented in his London churches build under Queen Anne's Act of 1711. The Act intended to supply fifty new churches to supplement the rebuilding done by Wren after the 1666 fire. The churches were to symbolize Queen Anne's great piety and also show a solid Anglican presence in the midst of potential threats from Catholics and Dissenters.
