John Dalberg-Acton

a.k.a. John Emerich Edward Dalberg-Acton, 1st Baron Acton

Author Code: EJDA

Born: Jan. 10, 1834 - Naples, Italy

Died: Jun. 19, 1902 - Tegernsee, Bavaria, Germany

Educated at Oscott College and with a private tutor in Edinburgh, Dalberg-Acton was unable to attend Cambridge University due to his Catholicism. He spent time in Munich studying under Joseph von Dollinger who inspired him in the study of history. Settling in England in 1859 at his family's estate Aldenham in Shropshire, he was elected an MP and spent six years in the House under Gladstone. In 1869, he was made a peer, becoming the first Baron Acton. His literary career probably began when he became the editor of the Catholic monthly, The Rambler, in 1859; later merged with the Home and Foreign Review. In 1878, he published Democracy in Europe, an essay that was well-received. In 1895, he was appointed Regius Professor of Modern History at Cambridge. He later planned the Cambridge Modern History. Dalberg-Acton received honorary doctorates from the University of Munich, All Souls College, Oxford and Cambridge University. His other works include Letters of Quirinus (1874), Freedom in Antiquity (1877), Freedom in Christianity (1877), Lecture on the Study of History (1895) and Historical Essays and Studies (1907 Posthumous).
