Classic historical novel, first published in 1855. According to Wikipedia: "Venerable John Henry Newman, CO (21 February 1801 11 August 1890) was a Roman Catholic priest and cardinal, a convert from Anglicanism in October 1845. In his early life, he was a major figure in the Oxford Movement to bring the Church of England back to its Catholic roots.[1] Eventually his studies in history persuaded him to become a Roman Catholic. Both before and after becoming a Roman Catholic, he wrote influential books, including Via Media, Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine (1845), Apologia Pro Vita Sua (186566) and the Grammar of Assent (1870). His body was buried in the small cemetery at Rednal near Birmingham, next to the Oratory country house. The grave was opened on 2 October 2008, with the intention of moving any remains to a tomb inside Birmingham Oratory, during Newman's consideration for sainthood; however, no remains were found because of the coffin having been wooden and the burial having taken place in a damp site. Canonization would make Cardinal Newman the first English person who has lived since the 17th century to be declared a saint. In 1991 Cardinal Newman was proclaimed "Venerable" by the Congregation for the Causes of Saints."
