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 Dublin Review, William Shakespeare, The Sisters-In-Law: A Novel of Our Time, A Sermon Delivered at the Consecration of the Right Rev.

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. (p. Now, we have no hesitation in saying that, if in the present work, the fessor has descended from his chair, to the level Of ordinary informa and abilities, we have a right to conclude, that when teaching his class, lectures must be most erudite.

The long street rising and falling and rising again until its farthest crest high in the east seemed to brush the fading stars, was deserted even by the private watch-men that guarded the homes of the apprehensive in the Western Addition. Alexina darted across and into the shadows of the avenue that led up to her old-fashioned home, a relic of San Francisco's "early days," perched high on the steepest of the casual hills in that city of a hundred hills.

Excerpt from A Sermon Delivered at the Consecration of the Right Rev. Dr. Thomas Joseph Brown, Bishop of Appollonia, First Vicar Apostolic of Wales: At the Church in Pierrepoint Street, Bath, on the Feast of Ss. Simon and Jude, 1811

St. Peter, the occupier of the apostolic see, from his elevated watch-tower, whence the ample range of his paternal eye takes in the entire earth in its length and breadth, and dwells with exultation or compassion upon every smallest spot, had for a long time seen. And inwardly marked, the ample field for multiplied pastoral solicitude, which this our island contained. He saw many whom he would gladly number among his spiritual children, separated by distance of place, or by natural inaccessibility Of territory, or by difference of speech, from the few seats of episcopal activity which our country possessed, and he judged the time had come for multiplying the shepherds, that the flock might be increased. He asked not for support from the arm of flesh; he asked not for counsel from the wisdom Of earth he trusted to the power committed to him long before any empire now existing had commenced, he acted upon the charter given him, in the first of his predecessors, 1800 y ago, upon the borders of the sea of Tiberias, Feed my sheep: - and he has among others, fixed his choice upon one, who, by his authority, is about to receive, in your pre sence, the imposition of hands, and the mysterious unction, by which he will be fully qualified for the discharge Of his new commissmn.

How uniform, yet how majestic is the work of God! What grandeur is there not in the repetition of such similar acts of power, at intervals not to be measured by the dura tion of earthly dynasties, yet all emanating from one single impulse, from one communication of omnipotent, immortal energy, the breath Of the living God animating, from the beginning, his undying Church.
