John Henry Newman is born. Newman will become a leader of the Oxford Movement, a group seeking to bring Anglicanism closer to Catholicism — in particular, the beliefs, traditions, and practices of the medieval Catholic Church.

Because he fails to move enough of his fellow Anglicans, he eventually leaves the Anglican Church on his own and becomes a Catholic priest, eventually being made cardinal by Pope Leo XIII and beatified by Pope Benedict XVI.
