Product description

Basil Hume - Signed by Anthony Howard

Very good condition.

Following Cardinal Basil Hume's death on 17 June 1999, The Times concluded his obituary with a remarkable accolade: 'Few churchmen in this century, inside or outside the Catholic Church, have died more deeply loved.' Basil Hume served as Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster for twenty-three years - a reign which symbolised the acceptance of Britain's five million catholics into the country's social fabric. His personal holiness and wisdom made him an extraordinary leader who was respected by secular Britain as well as Catholics. In this enthralling biography, Anthony Howard, who has had unique access to Cardinal Hume's private papers and the people who knew him best, traces his life, from his Newcastle upbringing through to his schooling at Ampleforth and his reign at Westminster, including his long and ultimately successful fight on behalf of the Maguire Seven and the Guildford Four.
