Biography | show moreshow less
Henry Edward Manning (1808-1892) was an Anglican cleric who converted to the Roman Catholic faith in mid-career. A rector (1833) and archdeacon (1841) in the Church of England, he published many of his sermons and a book, The Unity of the Church. In 1851, however, he converted to Catholicism, motivated by theological issues but also but unhappiness with the Anglican Church's subordination to civil authority, especially the courts. In 1865, he became Archbishop of Westminster, and in 1875 was made a Cardinal. He presided over the building of Westminster Cathedral, and actively promoted Catholic education in Britain. A theological conservative who strongly supported the doctrine of Papal infallibility, he was a social reformer who encouraged the church to seek social justice.
