Overview

Once a well known Anglican clergyman, Newman left his living in the 1840s, recanted his former criticism of the Roman Catholic Church, and entered the priesthood, becoming-ultimately-a cardinal. Framing his Apologia in reply to grave and gratuitous slander which he felt Charles Kingsley had made against him, Newman overcame his characteristic shyness and produced one of the masterpieces of spiritual writing: honest, passionate, scrupulous and moving.

John Henry Newman's conversion to Roman Catholicism rocked the Church of England to its foundation and escalated the spread of virulent anti-catholicism in Victorian England. A rigorous examination of his own religious development, enlivened by touches of satire and sometimes invective, Apologia pro Vita Sua is a spiritual autobiography of great power.
