About this title


Apologia Pro Vita Sua A defense of one's own life By John Henry (Cardinal) Newman Apologia Pro Vita Sua (Latin: A defense of one's own life) is John Henry Newman's defense of his religious opinions, published in 1864 in response to Charles Kingsley of the Church of England after Newman quit his position as the Anglican vicar of St. Mary's, Oxford. John Henry Newman was regarded as a premiere religious figure even before writing this definitive essay. The backdrop for the essay was a mid-century Anglican theological controversy in which Newman and other Anglicans were calling for a return to a former more disciplined and traditional authoritarian hierarchy. Friction during the years from 1833 to 1841 lead Newman and his allies in the Oxford Movement to publish a statement, the Tracts for the Times, to which Newman was a contributor. The tensions culminated in Newman's 1845 resignation as Anglican vicar of St. Mary's, Oxford and his departure from the Anglican church seeking the Roman Catholics.. One of Newman's rivals was Anglican Charles Kingsley of the Broad Church party, who responded to Newman's departure with attacks impeaching his truthfulness and honor. The flowing, almost poetic prose of the Apologia Pro Vita Sua was a spiritual autobiographical defense to Kingsley's attacks.
