Rev. Edward Irving (1792-1834) was a Scottish clergyman, generally regarded as the main figure behind the foundation of the Catholic Apostolic Church. He had little success in converting the Scottish public and was about to give up hope and focus his attention towards missionary labour in the East when he suddenly received an invitation from the Caledonian Church in London; over that charge he was ordained in 1822.
