After years of silence, Newman resurfaced mainly to defend himself from Charles Kingsley's grave accusation that he and the Roman Catholic Church were conspirators of false truths and deception. Newman fought back in 1864 by publishing the eight parts or pamphlets into a single volume entitled Apologia pro Vita Sua: Being a Reply to a Pamphletentitled “What, Then, Does Dr. Newman Mean?”. The second edition appeared the following year under the titleHistory of My Religious Opinions. It contained the history and collection of his religious opinions from his early years. In 1873, Newman restored the original title, while retaining the subtitle, “Being a History of his Religious Opinions”. Newman explained in the preface that his main objective was to refute Kingsley's charge of untruthfulness.
