John Lingard (1771–1851), a Catholic priest and historian, made a major contribution to the re-emergence of the Catholic community into national life in 19th century England. A founder of the seminary at Ushaw, he also played a significant role in the transformation of historical scholarship, but was somewhat overlooked in the hundred years after his death. However, recent study of his historical work highlights the importance of his History of England, which is now being accorded the acclaim it deserves. There is a remarkable quality to his work and here he emerges as a pivotal figure among Catholic historians.
