Elizabeth-Jane Pavlick McGuire “The Tracks of Some Unearthly Friend”: John Henry Newman’s Spiritual Theology of the Angels
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
John Henry Newman had a fascination with the angels, as evidenced by three of his published poems, a passage devoted to angels in his Apologia pro Vita Sua, as well as sermons on the angels. Surprisingly, Newman’s interest in angels has not attracted much scholarly attention. After examining some of Newman’s writings that touch upon angels, this essay suggests that Newman’s Romantic and Evangelical background prepared him for his reading of the Fathers in 1828, which in turn influenced his consideration of the significance of angels in the spiritual life.

David Fleischacker From Athens to Dublin: John Henry Newman on the History of the University
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
In November, 1854, five months before the opening of the Catholic University of Ireland, Newman initiated the publication of the University Gazette as a means of communicating his vision of the university as well as reporting on its activities. Each issue of the Gazette included an essay intended to provide the public with a better understanding of the history, nature and purpose of the university; these essays also provide insight into Newman’s historical understanding of the university and his vision of how the modern Catholic university needs to develop in light of its past.

Daniel J. Lattier Newman’s Silence on Fasting as a Roman Catholic
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
In contrast to his Anglican writings and practice—where fasting played a prominent role—Newman as a Roman Catholic was practically silent about fasting. This essay suggests that there were many reasons for Newman’s silence on fasting as a Roman Catholic, such as his health, his Oratorian vocation, and the presence of an established communal practice of fasting in the Roman Catholic Church.

James M. Pribek Newman in Twentieth-Century American Literature: Fitzgerald, Lewis, and O’Connor
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
This essay traces Newman’s rich legacy in modern American literature in the writings of three prominent American writers of the last century: F. Scott Fitzgerald, who plays off of Newman’s definition of a gentleman in his The Beautiful and Damned (1922); Sinclair Lewis, who connects the figure of Carlyle Vesper to Newman in Gideon Planish (1943); and Flannery O’Connor, who mentioned Newman in four published letters, and whose artistic vision was shaped appreciably by Newman’s Apologia and his Grammar of Assent.

Matthew Briel John Henry Newman and Luigi Giussani: Similarities in their Conceptions of Reason
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
This essay examines some aspects of the conceptions of reason in the thought of Luigi Giussani and John Henry Newman. Although the two writers have different approaches and emphases, their notions of reason display striking complementarities, especially in regard to the complex relationship of the reason and the will, converging probabilities, and the operation of reason in relation to faith (informal inference).

Kevin Mongrain The Eyes of Faith: Newman’s Critique of Arguments from Design
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
This essay examines the theological and rhetorical concerns animating John Henry Newman’s evaluation of efforts to prove the existence of God and/or the truth of Christianity with philosophical arguments about the design of nature. Newman’s complex position on arguments from design ought to be interpreted in light of his broader theological understanding of the challenges posed to the practice of Christian faith in his nineteenth century context. These challenges required that apologetics first and foremost defend the truth of Christianity as a religion of holiness, not as a religion of reasonableness.
