“That it is the work of a scholar of very wide reading, the mass of evidence, historical and liturgical, with which the pages are almost overcrowded, amply proves,” — Tablet.
“It is of the highest value to one entering upon the study of its subject, and likely also to prove of great service to advanced canonists for purposes of reference.”-Scotsman,
“ It is difficult to conceive a work more acceptable to Churchmen. It is a most learned work-learned, indeed, beyond the dreams of the most pedantic."-Law Times.
“Written in a style clear and precise. By his accurate and methodical researches the author has rendered a true service to careful studies.”— La Civiltà Cattolica.
“Supplies a very urgent need which is very widely felt now that the study of Canon Law is being revived in the English Church."-Church Times.
“A monument of erudition. The library of no ecclesiastical lawyer, or student of ecclesiastical history will be complete without it.”—Law Journal. BY THE SAME AUTHOR, PAPERS READ BEFORE THE

TO THE ORIGINAL EDITION.
The first eight chapters of the following Life were printed off from time to time, as they appeared in the Rambler in the years 1861 and 1862. When the Rambler changed into the Home and Foreign Review this work was dropped, and was only resumed in November 1866.
Campion has had so many biographers that a new one may be expected to state his reasons for telling again a tale so often told. They are very simple. In the course of my researches among different archives, I found a quantity of unpublished matter that had never been seen by the former biographers; and in reading over the earliest and most authentic memoirs I found so many points obscured by phrase - making, misunderstood through ignorance of England, or misrepresented through the one-sidedness of those whose information was depended upon, that there seemed ample room for another book on the same subject.
I have to express my obligations to the Jesuit Fathers at Stonyhurst, who had the kindness to send the mss. relating to Campion to London for my convenience; to Charles Weld, Esq. who took the trouble to copy from a ms. at the Gesù in Rome the whole of Bombinus' unpublished additions and corrections for his biography; and lastly, to Father Victor de Buck, Bollandist, of Brussels, for several references to rare books, and for encouragement, without which the work would never have been resumed.
The Bibliographical Appendix and the references in the notes will be a sufficient indication of the authorities which I have followed.
Clapham, Dec. 21, 1866.
