Basil William Maturin (1847–1915) was an Irish Anglican priest and writer from Dublin. He was educated at Trinity College, and in 1876, he moved to Philadelphia, where he grew in attraction to the Catholic Church until he joined in 1897; was ordained into Catholic priesthood by his best friend a year later. He was soon appointed as the Catholic chaplain to the University of Oxford. He lost his life through the sinking of the Lusitania during World War I, as he was returning from New York after holding a mission. He was last seen alive standing on one of the decks with hand upraised giving the Extreme Unction (a sacramental prayer for the dying) to the souls about to enter eternity.
He was the author of several religious and psychological books, including Laws of the Spiritual Life, The Price of Unity, and Self-Knowledge and Self-Discipline. Incidentally, he was the second-cousin of famous Irish writer and poet Oscar Wilde.
