Quick Reference

(1806–93), divine and journalist. The brother of J. B. Mozley, he was educated at Oriel College, Oxford (where J. H. Newman was his tutor), and elected a Fellow of the College in 1829. A staunch supporter of the Tractarian Movement, he edited the British Critic (1841–3), wrote extensively for The Times newspaper, and held a succession of parochial appointments. He is remembered particularly for his Reminiscences, chiefly of Oriel College and the Oxford Movement (2 vols., 1882), which is valuable for the light it throws on many aspects of the Oxford Movement, and Letters from Rome on the Occasion of the [First Vatican] Council, 1869–1870 (2 vols., 1891). Though a gifted writer, Mozley was apt to be inaccurate in his record of facts.
