Born into an England presided over by King George III, John Keble became a leading churchman in the Victorian age and a central figure in the history of the Oxford Movement. Hailing from Fairford in Gloucestershire, Keble's father, also named John, was a saintly rural vicar, staunchly High Church in religion and firmly Tory in political conviction. His influence over the younger Keble was decisive.
