R I Wilberforce

The Pontificator blogs about Robert Isaac Wilberforce and gives a link to one of his books:
Of the 19th century Anglo-Catholic divines, Robert Wilberforce was second only to Newman in theological acumen and sophistication. And like Newman he poped. The last book he wrote as an Anglican was The Doctrine of the Holy Eucharist, which is now available at the Internet Archive
.Those of you interested in Wilberforce might be interested in this picture of his grave in Rome that I snapped a couple of years ago, and this post which touches on the relationship between Newman and Wilberforce from 2004.
Apologies for the long blog-break. My readers & correspondents can be reassured that I am still alive and well, albeit not planning on blogging much in the immediate future.
