Nicholas S.P. Wiseman - book author

Cardinal Nicholas Stephen Patrick Wiseman became the first Roman Catholic Archbishop of Westminster in 1850 upon the official, post-Reformation, re-establishment of the Catholic Church in England and Wales.

Wiseman was an extraordinary man, and one of the key figures in the revival of Catholicism in this country. Born in Spain to Irish parents, he studied at the English College in Rome, becoming its Rector in 1828 at the astonishing age of 25. A fine linguist, he was given charge of the Vatican's arabic manuscripts. In 1850, he became the first Archbishop of the newly erected Diocese of Westminster, and a Cardinal.

During his life, his preaching, writings and example did much to advance the Catholic cause in England, and he was widely respected as a churchman and a scholar.

Nicholas S.P. Wiseman is the author of books: Fabiola: Or, The Church of the Catacombs, Review of His Grace Archbishop Dixon's Catholic Introduction to Scripture Review, The Dublin Review, Volume 71, Recollections of the Last Four Popes and of Rome in Their Times, The Real Presence of the Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Blessed Eucharist: Proved from Scripture in Eight Lectures, William Shakespeare, The High-Church Claims: Or, a Series of Papers on the Oxford Controversy, the High-Church Theory of - Scholar's Choice Edition, Conf�rences Sur Les Doctrines Et Les Pratiques Les Plus Importantes de l'�glise Catholique, Vol. 2, A Sermon Delivered in St. George's Catholic Church, Southwark, on Sunday Evening, Aug. 11th, 1850, Conf�rences Sur Les Doctrines Et Les Pratiques Les Plus Importantes de l'�glise Catholique, Vol. 1

Excerpt from The Catholic Doctrine on the Use of the Bible, Vol. 33: Being a Review of His Grace Archbishop Dixon's Catholic Introduction to Scripture Review

We cannot indeed doubt, from the work before us, that the script education of St. Patrick's College is both practical and solid. For Dr. Di assures us, that his principal Object has not been, to provide a book the learned reader, but to present to the intelligent Catholic pi: generally, a book wherein they might read, in plain and simple, and c language, facts and doctrines, highly interesting to a Christian.

Excerpt from Recollections of the Last Four Popes and of Rome in Their Times
This work hardly requires any preface beyond the introductory matter contained in the first chapters; a few words, therefore, will be here sufficient.
Every reader will expect this volume to present a view of the subject treated, different from what is presented by other writers. Tourists, politicians, lecturers, and newspaper writers, have given estimates of persons and events here mentioned, often contradictory to what they may appear in these pages. All that one can do in such a case is to require an impartial balance of evidence. Can those writers or speakers say that they have been present, or have witnessed what they describe, or that they have taken pains to test and verify the hearsay evidence which they have accepted? At any rate, here is a writer's character pledged to the sincerity of his views, and to the correctness of his statements.

Excerpt from Conf�rences sur les Doctrines Et les Pratiques les Plus Importantes de l'�glise Catholique, Vol. 2

A ces deux pr�rogatives si �tendues, nous pou vous ajouter une troisi�me mission attribu�e � saint Pierre par le Christ apr�s sa r�surrection, lorsque, lui ayant trois fois demand� Pierre, m'aimez - vous? Le Sauveur lui dit par trois fois Paissez mes brebis et mes agneaux.

C'est principalement sur ces passages d�cisifs que l'�glise s'est fond�e pour dire que saint Pierre avait �t� investi d'une pr��minence et d'une supr�matie Spirituelle. Et si, en effet, dans ces diff�rentes missions donn�es � saint Pierre, il est vrai qu'il ait recu un pouvoir et une juri diction qui'lui �taient propres, un pouvoir et une juridiction sup�rieurs � la puissance attribu�e au reste des ap�tres, il faudra reconna�tre que la su pr�matie que nous lui reconnaissons lui avait �t� r�ellement attribu�e par Dieu.
