Abstract and Keywords

In Tract 90 (1841) John Henry Newman attempted to reconcile the Thirty-Nine Articles with Catholic teaching. Severely attacked by the bishops of the Church of England, Tract 90 brought the series of Tracts to an end. Newman then let the leadership of the Movement pass to radicals like William George Ward, whose insistence that he rejected not one Roman doctrine led to his degradation from his degrees. Newman resigned his parish of St Mary the Virgin in 1843 and his orders in 1845, when he became a Roman Catholic. His submission to Rome became the ‘type’ of such Anglican conversions, which became part of the controversial pattern of English religious life.
