Wiseman, Nicholas Patrick Stephen

(1802–65)
   Cardinal and Archbishop.
   Wiseman was of Anglo-Irish descent and between 1828 and 1840 he was Rector of the English College in Rome. He returned to England as Coadjutor of the Vicar Apostolic of the Midland District. In 1850, amid demonstrations of hostility, Pope Pius IX restored the Roman Catholic hierarchy in England with Wiseman as Cardinal Archbishop of Westminster. Even the Prime Minister, Lord John Russell, regretted what he described as ‘papal aggression’. Wiseman was ultramontane by conviction; he established branches of religious orders and he did much to organise a pastoral ministry for the hordes of Irish immigrants seeking work in England. Among his writings was the popular novel Fabiola.
