Re: More Precision, Please

Humility issues are just the start of it. Charles Kingsley’s chief complaint against him was that, “Father Newman informs us that truth for its own sake need not be, and on the whole ought not to be, a virtue of the Roman clergy.”  However, I think the Apologia Pro Vita Sua laid that one to rest.  I trust the Oxford Movement is not about to judder to a halt because of a chance discovery in an American library. 

(And yes, for precision, as long as Pusey House is there, I contend there will be an Oxford Movement).
