Ronald Knox

Knox, Ronald, 1888–1957, English theologian and author. He attended Eton and then Balliol College, Oxford, and in 1910 was ordained as an Anglican minister. Doctrinal preferences, however, led to his Roman Catholic ordination (1919) and appointment as Catholic chaplain at Oxford (1926). While chaplain, Knox wrote several detective novels until appointed to produce a new English Bible (complete ed. 1955). Other works include Spiritual Aeneid (1918), a defense of his adoption of Catholicism, and Enthusiasm (1950), a history of Christian sectarianism.
