Overview

This book contains John Henry Newman’s 1864 treatise, "Apologia Pro Vita Sua". It is the seminal defense of the author’s religious beliefs. It formed a rejoinder to what Newman considered as a baseless assail on himself, the Catholic church, and Roman Catholic doctrine - by Charles Kingsley (the author of "The Water Babies"). The book became a best-seller almost overnight, and is still widely read and in print today. This fascinating and seminal text is highly recommended for those with an interest in religion or Catholicism, and would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. John Henry Newman (1801 - 1890) was an influential figure in the religious history of nineteenth-century England. Many vintage texts such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

Meet the Author

John Henry Newman, (1801-1890) was a Roman Catholic priest and cardinal, a convert from Anglicanism in October 1845. In his early life, he was a major figure in the Oxford Movement to bring the Church of England back to its Catholic roots. Eventually his studies in history persuaded him to become a Roman Catholic. Both before and after becoming a Roman Catholic, he wrote influential books, including Via Media, Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine (1845), Apologia Pro Vita Sua (1865-66) and the Grammar of Assent (1870).
