The period is characterised as one of relative peace among the great powers of the world (as established by the Congress of Vienna), increased economic activity, refined sensibilities and a full sense of great national self-confidence for Great Britain. Ideologically, the Victorian era witnessed resistance to the rationalism that defined the Georgian period and an increasing turn towards romanticism and mysticism with regard to religion, social values, and arts.
