A photographic portrait of Cardinal John Henry Newman (1801-1890), taken at the studio of Herbert Rose Barraud, Oxford Street, London, in about 1885. Newman became one of the most influential Anglican ministers in all of England. A tutor at Oxford University, his damning views of the Catholic Church were well known but, in 1845, his studies led him to a remarkable conversion to Catholicism. He was ordained into the priesthood in 1847 having withdrawn all his previous Anglican ideas. Newman was declared venerable on 22 January 1991.
