There are several high-profile "defectors" (tongue-in-cheek!) or converts from high-church traditions (such as Anglicanism) to Roman Catholicism. I am thinking in particular of G. K. Chesterton and John Henry Newman. Are there any corresponding conversions from Roman Catholicism (or another Orthodox/Catholic tradition) to a high-church Protestant tradition, in the last two hundred years or so? (thus excluding the Protestant Reformation itself!)

Gotta VTC on the grounds of the list-ish nature of this question. It's good interesting question though. – Peter Turner Jan 15 '13 at 18:48

Wikipedia has an article on people who have converted to Anglicanism and a category for Catholic-Anglican conversions. Ones specifically listed as converting to Anglicanism from Catholicism as adults include:

  • Dinesh D'Souza said he converted from Catholicism to his wife's tradition in a Christian's vs. Atheists debate I attended a few years ago. He still defends the Catholic Church very well.
