Monsignor Ronald Knox (1888-1957) was ordained an Anglican priest in 1912 but converted to Catholicism in 1917, an event influenced by Knox's friendship with G. K. Chesterton. Knox wrote numerous books, including Enthusiasm, Essays in Satire, and several detective novels, and completed a full translation of the Latin Vulgate into English.
