John Henry Newman, Oxford Movement scholar and Roman Catholic convert, to be canonized Sunday

John Henry Newman is remembered in Anglicanism largely for his role as a founding member and leading tractarian of the Oxford Movement in the Church of England. He is known in Roman Catholicism as a convert and a cardinal, and in both traditions as a scholar and a priest. Newman will be canonized by the Roman Catholic church this Sunday, October 13th.
