Professor of Heberew at Oxford University and one of the most controversial figures in the Church of England in the 19th century. A founder of the influential revivalist 'Tractarian' or 'Oxford' Movement, he was felt by many to be too close to the Catholic Church, especially due to his interest in the teachings of the early Christian fathers. In 1843 he was controversially condemned for heresy and banned for two years from preaching at the university. This led to the famous conversion of his associate J. H. Newman (later Cardinal Newman) to the Roman Church. Pusey however remained within the Church of England and continued to the end of his life to promote his views.
