Apologia Pro Vita Sua / Edition 1

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.

About the Author

John Henry Newman (1801 - 1890) was a vicar of Oxford University's church from 1828 - 1842, when his controversial Tract attempting to interpret the 39 Articles of Faith of the Church of England in a Catholic sense, led to him retiring to Littlemore, where he lived in monastic seclusion. He was received into the Catholic Church in 1845 and ordained in 1847. Apologia Pro Vita Sua appeared in 1864.

Ian Ker has a MA from Oxford and a Ph.D from Cambridge. He was ordained a Roman Catholic Priest in 1979 and has taught at universities in Britain and the United States. He is the author and editor of sixteen books on Newman, including Newman and the Fullness of Christianity (1993).
