Newman, John Henry, Cardinal, 1801-1890

John Henry Newman stands as a giant in the fields of theology, philosophy, and education. Influencing many academic and spiritual disciplines, Newman's writings and his lifelong search for religious truth continue to inspire scholars throughout the world. Newman started his public life as a fellow of Oriel College and, soon after, as Vicar of St. Mary the Virgin Church in Oxford, England. He was a leader of the Oxford Movement which began in 1833. A prominent member of the Church of England for the first half of his life, he converted to Roman Catholicism in 1845. Two years later, Newman founded the first English-speaking Oratory of St. Philip Neri in Birmingham, England. In 1851, Newman undertook the founding of the Catholic University of Ireland in Dublin. He was made a cardinal of the Catholic Church in 1879. His many scholarly works have remained a significant force.


Kingsley, Charles, Rev, 1819-1875

At the Grammar School, Helston, Cornwall, at King's College, London, went in Oct. 1838 to Magdalene College, Cambridge, being 'senior optime' in the mathematical tripos and then taking the last place in the first class of the classical tripos 1842. He had religious doubts, resolved by reading the works of F. D. Maurice and others, reacted strongly against the Oxford Movement, and took Orders in 1842. In 1844 he married Fanny Grenfell, and was made Rector of Eversley, Hampshire. He became one of the Christian Socialists in 1848, and his first novels were written under their influence. Later he developed a xenophobic patriotism and became an advocate of muscular Christianity. In 1859 he was appointed Chaplain-in-Ordinary to Queen Victoria, and in 1860 Regius Professor of Modern History at Cambridge. His lectures were criticised as being those of a historical novelist. He had more than one breakdown from overwork. He resigned his Cambridge Professorship in 1869, was appointed a Canon of Chester in 1869, and then of Westminster in 1873. After his death Newman wrote that he could not feel resentment towards Kingsley who had accidentally given him the opportunity to vindicate his career. He had hoped they might have met, and felt sure that he, Newman, would have felt no embarrassment.


Ward, Wilfrid Philip, 1856-1916

Son of William George Ward, who moved away from his ultramontanism. He studied at Ushaw and Rome but gave up the thought of the priesthood, and wrote works of Christian apologetics inspired by Newman, in 1887 he married Josephine, second daughter of James Hope-Scott. Wilfrid Ward's chief works were his biographies.
