Edward Bouverie Pusey was a highly influential 19th century Anglican churchman whose integral role in the Oxford Movement prefigured his place as the acknowledged leader of the Victorian Anglo-Catholics. Born in 1800 into a minor aristocratic family from Berkshire, he was educated at Eton College before advancing to Christ Church, Oxford. A highly successful undergraduate career followed, capped by his election to a fellowship at Oriel College in 1823. His contemporaries there included John Henry Newman and John Keble, with whom he soon became closely aligned.
