The point of controversy, in 1864, between Charles Kingsley and John Henry Newman is now only incidental to what it produced. Out of it came one of the most influential religious autobiographies of western liturature, the Apologia Pro Vita Sua. It is far more than a vigorous defense of religious adherence it is an affirmation of faith and conviction, a projection of a magnetic and powerful personality and dynamic account of spiritual conversion. Anton C. Pegis, the renowned Thomist scholar and distinguished Catholic philosopher, provides an illuminating and perceptive introduction for Cardinal Newman's masterpiece.Contents Include Mr. Kingsley's Method of Disputation True Mode of Meeting Mr. Kingsley History of my Religious Opinions up to 1833 History of my Religious Opinions from 1833 to 1839 History of Religious Opinions from 1839 to 1841 History of my Religious Opinions from 1841 to 1845 General Answer to Mr. Kingsley Keywords: Charles Kingsley John Henry Newman Apologia Pro Vita Cardinal Newman Religious Autobiographies Affirmation Of Faith Anton C Pegis Vigorous Defense True Mode Spiritual Conversion Adherence Philosopher Masterpiece Incidental

About the author (2008)

John Henry Newman, (1801-1890) 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. 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 (1865-66) and the Grammar of Assent (1870).
