Four important years:
1) 1829: Catholic Emancipation–Catholics at last able to vote, worship freely,
2) 1845: John Henry Newman becomes a Catholic–harbinger of wave of Oxford Movement converts
3) 1850: Restoration of the Hierarchy–Catholic revival (churches, schools, convents, monasteries–infrastructure)
4) 1870: Papal Infallibility and Catholic Loyalty–John Henry Newman and Conscience
