John Lingard and the Pursuit of Historical Truth

Overview

“Edwin Jones is well equipped to tell Lingard’s story, to examine Lingard’s methods with true Lingardian meticulousness and to explain the circumstances of his intellectual ostracism… This book confirms the view that the search for historical truth, despite the obstacles, is not a waste of time or effort. It restores Lingard to his rightful place in the pantheon of British historians. And it shows that the British historical tradition is even richer than most of us were led to believe.’’ From the Foreword by Norman Davies, author of Europe: A

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“In this magisterial volume Dr. Jones has revealed the full extent of Lingard’s historiographical labours and achievements.’’  —Recusant History

“Edwin Jones has produced a very good book, and has re-introduced one of Catholicism’s greatest historians to the English-speaking world… all educated historians would do well to read this book.”  —Catholic Historical Review

 “John Lingard was a member of the English Catholic community who wrote his ten-volume History of England in the years immediately preceding emancipation. But for the best part of a century after that event it was held by historians in the Whig-Protestant mainstream that a good Catholic historian was almost an oxymoron. Edwin Jones’s definitive research into Lingard is a major event in English historiography.”  —Patrick Collinson, University of Cambridge and Fellow of Trinity College

Booknews
Serving as a kind of apology for Lingard, this volume follows the 19th-century English historian's career, with many quotes from his work, and frequent rejoinders on his astute perception of history, uncolored by nationalism, religious belief, or political inclination. Jones champions Lingard as a cool-headed revisionist when other historians were ardent nationalists. Jones wrote his dissertation on Lingard in the 1950s and returned to the practice of history (and historiography) following his retirement from a "30-year headship of a Comprehensive school in South Wales (UK)."
