Strangites are persons who believe that magic should be open to all who wish to practise it, even to members of the lower classes - or even to ladies. After the departure of Strange and Norrell the body of people interested in magic generally divided into those who thought Norrell's extremely conservative approach to magical learning and practice was correct, and those who felt that this had cruelly shackled magic's development. The latter party were called the Strangites.
