A new biography of Antonio Rosmini

A new biography of Antonio Rosmini, the first in English for over half a century, will be published in July.

Fr Michael Hill places Rosmini in the context of his family, his friends, his foes and his nation.  He evaluates the impact Rosmini had on other significant figures in the Church, and on his followers in the Institute of Charity and the Sisters of Providence

What emerges is something of a tragic story.  Though greatly loved and admired by many, he was also often misunderstood, bitter attacks on him by his enemies within the Church and in international politics were the source of much anguish for him.   Rosmini has finally been rehabilitated by the Church and his holiness recognised.  A persecuted prophet and an important figure in the intellectual development of the Church, he is very much a prophet for our time.
