Pusey was born into noble lineage on August 22, 1800 near Oxford. He was calm and self-assured but isolated. He accepted his mother’s High Anglican teaching and moved toward a clerical vocation by way of Eaton and Oxford. After studying Theology and languages in Germany he was nominated Regis Professor of Hebrew at Oxford by the Duke of Wellington.
He joined John Keble and John Henry Newman as part of the Oxford Movement, a movement that sought a renewal of Catholic thought and practice within the Church of England in opposition to its protestant tendencies.Read More
