Keble, John (17921866)

Keble, John, English clergyman, author of the “Christian Year,” born in Fairford, Gloucestershire; studied at Oxford, and became Fellow of Oriel College in 1811; in 1827 appeared the “Christian Year,” which he published anonymously; in 1831 was appointed professor of Poetry in Oxford, and that same year issued an “Address to the Electors of the United Kingdom” against the Reform Bill; he was one of four who originated the Tractarian movement at Oxford, and was the author of several of the “Tracts for the Times”; in 1835 he was presented to the vicarage of Hursley, which he held till his death; he was author of “Lyra Innocentium,” and along with Newman and others of “Lyra Apostolica”; the secession of Newman rather riveted than loosened his attachment to the English Church (17921866).
