Blessed John Henry Newman's Coat of Arms
From Britanica Online:
Blessed John Henry Newman, (b. Feb. 21, 1801, London, Eng.—d. Aug. 11, 1890, Birmingham, Warwick; beatified Sept. 19, 2010), influential churchman and man of letters of the 19th century, who led the Oxford Movement in the Church of England and later became a cardinal-deacon in the Roman Catholic Church. His eloquent books, notably Parochial and Plain Sermons (1834–42), Lectures on the Prophetical Office of the Church (1837), and University Sermons (1843), revived emphasis on the dogmatic authority of the church and urged reforms of the Church of England after the pattern of the original “catholic,” or universal, church of the first five centuries ad. By 1845 he came to view the Roman Catholic Chruch as the true modern development from the original body.
