Paul Shrimpton has lived in Oxford since 1977, studying at Balliol College, then teaching at Magdalen College School. As an historian of education, he has been researching the educational ideas and practice of John Henry Newman for three decades. Besides various papers and chapters, he has published three books: A Catholic Eton? Newman’s Oratory School (2005) a study of the foundation and early life of the first Catholic public school in England; The ‘Making of men’: the Idea and reality of Newman’s university in Oxford and Dublin (2014); and Conscience before conformity: Hans and Sophie Scholl and the White Rose resistance in Nazi Germany (2018). The latter is a study of the cultural and religious background of the White Rose students which brings out the influence of Newman and others. He has also completed a critical edition of Newman’s Dublin university papers, which were published posthumously in 1896, My Campaign in Ireland, Part I (2021). Dr Shrimpton has set up a website, based on The ‘Making of men’, at www.ideaofauniversity.website He is currently working on a critical edition of My Campaign in Ireland, Part II, which he hopes will appear in 2022.
