One of the most controversial religious figures of the nineteenth century, John Henry Newman (1801–1890) began his career as a priest in the Church of England but converted to the Roman Catholic Church in 1845. He became a cardinal in 1879.

Between 1833 and 1845 Newman, now best known for his autobiographical Apologia Pro Vita Sua and The Idea of a University, was the aggressive leader of the Tractarian Movement within Oxford University. Newman, along with John Keble, Richard Hurrell Froude, and E. B. Pusey, launched an uncompromising battle against the dominance of evangelicalism in early Victorian religious life. By 1845 Newman’s radically outspoken views had earned him censure from Oxford authorities and sharp criticism from the English bishops.

Departing from previous interpretations, Turner portrays Newman as a disruptive and confused schismatic conducting a radical religious experiment. Turner demonstrates that Newman’s passage to Rome largely resulted from family quarrels, thwarted university ambitions, the inability to control his followers, and his desire to live in a community of celibate males.

From the Back Cover:

A provocative reappraisal of a pivotal figure, John Henry Newman also offers an important reconsideration of the religious and intellectual history of the nineteenth century.

"Frank Turner is one of the leading historians of nineteenth-century Britain and arguably the leading intellectual historian, so expectations for this book run high-and they are not disappointed, for this is his crowning achievement." -Boyd Hilton, Cambridge University

"Frank Turner's meticulously researched, brilliantly revisionist book hurls a grenade into Newman studies. . . . This magisterial work of intellectual archaeology forcefully conveys the complexity and conflict of early Victorian religion." -George P. Landow, Brown University

About the Author:

Frank M. Turner is John Hay Whitney Professor of History at Yale University.
