This collection of documents and letters grant us an intimate look into the life of an extraordinary priest.

Rev. Haydock is most often remembered today as the author of the famous "Haydock" bible which contains the Douay-Rheims text along with the copious footnotes and commentary by Haydock himself. His purpose was not merely to give the persecuted Catholics of England the best in scriptural text and exegesis taken from the Fathers and Doctors for their own education and edification, but also to give them scholarly ammunition to assist them in the conversion of their protestant family and friends who had been so confused by the various heretical texts and sermons available to them.

The life of Rev. George Leo Haydock (1774-1849) neatly enclosed some of the most remarkable decades in the history of the post-Reformation English Catholic community, as its lay and clerical members moved forward from an ad hoc tolerance to a fuller legal equality. Three years after Haydock's death, in 1852 St John Newman (1801-90) was to hail the period that took in his own conversion in 1845 as embracing a 'second spring', in which England's Catholic Church re-emerged from centuries of oppression and obscurity, since the Tudor Reformation of the 16th century.
