    The theologian and priest John Henry Newman (1801-1890) was a leading light of the Oxford Movement, which aimed to reintroduce elements of Catholic ritual into the Church of England. When he converted to Catholicism in 1845, his family, colleagues and the wider public were profoundly shocked. This sympathetic, meticulously researched biography traces the influence of his parents and siblings on the formative years of this great churchman, and the personal cost of his spiritual journey.
