William Palmer

Ecclesiastical writer, and prominent figure in the Oxford Movement; born Mixbury, England, 1811; died Rome, Italy, 1879. Educated at Rugby and Oxford he spent the early part of his life in fruitless endeavors to have the Anglican Church recognized as a branch of the Catholic Church, and finally became a Catholic, 1855. His early writings deal mainly with the problem of intercommunion; as a Catholic he wrote a treatise on early Christian symbolism and a commentary on the Book of Daniel.
