Henry Edward Manning was a member of the Oxford movement, which sought a return of the Church of England to the High Church ideals of the 17th century. Manning's belief in Anglicanism was shattered in 1850 when, in the so-called Gorham judgement, the Privy Council ordered the Church of England to institute an evangelical cleric who denied that the sacrament of baptism had an objective effect of baptismal regeneration. He converted to Roman Catholicism and became the second Archbishop of Westminster from 1865 until his death in 1892. Manning was very influential in setting the direction of the modern Catholic Church. His warm relations with Pope Pius IX and his ultramontane views gained him the trust of the Vatican.

Benjamin Disraeli, 1st Earl of Beaconsfield was a British politician of the Conservative Party who twice served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
