Exonian publishes book on William Lockhart
Fr Nicholas Schofield (1994, Modern History) has published a book about another Old Member, William Lockhart (1838). Lockhart was one of the disciples of John Henry Newman and his conversion to Catholicism in 1842, a year after leaving Exeter, caused a great stir and led to Newman’s resignation from the University Church of St Mary the Virgin.
The book, William Lockhart: First Fruits of the Oxford Movement is published by Gracewing. It was published in July and Fr Schofield was delighted that his former tutor, Dr John Maddicott, was able to attend the book launch.
