    Book Description

    1899. Charles Kingsley was an English clergyman and novelist. He was the founding member of the Christian Socialist movement and was known for his controversy with Cardinal Newman. He was a chaplain to Queen Victoria, a rector at Eversley, Hampshire and was sympathetic to the Chartists. Found in this volume is Poems, the story which Kingsley put into dramatic form. This story is one familiar to Romanists, and perfectly and circumstantially authenticated. Wishing to adhere strictly to historical truth, Kingsley followed the received account, not only in the incidents, but often in the language which it attributes to its various characters; and has given in the Notes all necessary references to the biography in Canisius' collection.
