Owne First Edition, Rare in Original Parts, of the Apologia; First Edition of the Correspondence. Newman, one of the key figures in the religious history of 19th-century England, was a leader of the Oxford Movement, a group of Anglican clergymen who objected to what they saw as the Church of England's increasing theological liberalism and argued for the restoration of many pre-Reformation Christian beliefs and liturgical practices. In 1845, after a period of soul-searching, Newman left the Church of England and was received into the Roman Catholic Church; after being ordained as a priest, he continued to exert influence through his sermons, lectures and writings. He was created a cardinal by Pope Leo XIII in 1879. In January 1864 the Rev. Charles Kingsley, an anti-Catholic, published a review of Froude's History of England in Macmillan's Magazine in which he accused Newman of advocating for deceit and untruthfulness in the Roman Catholic clergy. After an exchange of letters, collected and published in Mr. Kingsley and Dr. Newman (no. [2] above), Newman issued his landmark Apologia pro vita sua, a spiritual autobiography and defense of Catholicism against Kingsley's criticisms. "From [this] time on his integrity was wholly vindicated, and his position both as a human being and as a member of the Roman Catholic Church became a great deal easier" (Printing and the Mind of Man, p. 190). We are offering the Apologia in the original eight parts, issued between April and June 1864; a revised book-form edition appeared in 1865. Bookseller Inventory # 44091
