John Henry Newman (1801-1890) was an important religious figure in 19th Century Britain. Originally an Oxford academic and clergyman in the Anglican Church, Newman was an influential member of the Oxford Movement, a movement of Anglicans who wanted to return the Church of England to more Catholic beliefs and forms of worship. Newman himself converted to Catholicism in 1845 and rose to become a Cardinal in the Church. He was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI in 2010.
