Birth: Apr. 25, 1792
Gloucestershire, England
Death: Mar. 29, 1866
Hampshire, England

English churchman, one of the leaders of the Oxford Movement, and gave his name to Keble College, Oxford. He published a book of poetry The Christian Year, with the result that Keble was in 1831 appointed to the Chair of Poetry at Oxford, which he held until 1841. In 1833, his famous sermon on "national apostasy" gave the first impulse to the Oxford Movement, also known as the Tractarian movement. Along with his colleagues, including John Henry Newman and Edward Pusey, he became a leading light in the movement, but did not follow Newman into the Roman Catholic faith. In 1835, he settled down to family life in Hursley, Hampshire, where he remained for the rest of his life.
