Elizabeth-Jane Pavlick McGuire “The Tracks of Some Unearthly Friend”: John Henry Newman’s Spiritual Theology of the Angels
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
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
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
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.

Walter E. Conn Newman on Conscience
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
After reviewing Newman’s famous defense of conscience in his Letter to the Duke of Norfolk (1875), this essay assembles Newman’s lifelong reflections on conscience—from his Anglican sermons to his Grammar of Assent (1870)—in a threefold structure: desire, discernment, and demand.

Vinh Bao Luu-Quang Newman’s Theology of the Immanent Trinity in his Parochial and Plain Sermons: 1829–1834
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
This study of two of Newman’s Anglican sermons—“The Christian Mysteries” (1829) and “The Mystery of the Holy Trinity” (1831)—shows that he considered the doctrine of the Trinity to be the foundation of Christian faith. Simultaneously, this study highlights the biblical and patristic underpinnings of Newman’s Trinitarian theology, while showing that he was defending Trinitarian orthodoxy from both “classical heresies” and contemporary Liberalism and Rationalism.

Edward Jeremy Miller Newman on the Tension between Religion and Science: Creationism, Evolution, and Intelligent Design
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
After sketching four contemporary perspectives about the origin of the created world, this essay tests Newman’s contention that conflicts between true religious doctrines and sound scientific discoveries are only apparent: one truth cannot contradict another. In resolving tensions between religion and science, Newman’s advice about being patient with apparent incompatibility seems particularly appropriate in the contemporary debate between Creationism, evolutionary theory, and Intelligent Design.

Steven D. Aguzzi John Henry Newman’s Anglican Views on Judaism
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
The scant scholarship associated with Newman’s Anglican views about Judaism has focused on his negative rhetoric against Judaism and portrayed him as anti-Semitic. His Anglican writings, however, applied terms associated with Judaism in a typological sense to the political and religious realities of his day, primarily to support his apologetic agenda and to highlight threats to the Church of England. Simultaneously, he stressed the positive characteristics of Judaism, illustrated the continuity between Judaism and Christianity, and pointed out that the religious system of Judaism was divinely inspired and contained worthy examples for Christian living.

C. Michael Shea Newman, Perrone, and Möhler on Dogma and History: A Reappraisal of the Newman-Perrone Paper on Development
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
This essay, an analysis of the “Newman-Perrone Paper on Development” (1847), argues that previous studies have inflated the differences between the two thinkers with the result that the significant influence of Newman’s theory of development on Perrone’s theology and, subsequently, on the definition of the Immaculate Conception has been overlooked.

Dwight Lindley Probability and Economy in Newman’s Theory of Knowledge
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
This essay considers Newman’s basic epistemology in terms of two of his most important, and often overlooked, sources: Aristotle and the Church Fathers. Inparticular, Newman’s reliance upon Aristotle’s ethical and rhetorical thought on the one hand, and upon the patristic concept of oikonomia on the other, guided him in crafting the well-known account of faith and reason in his thirteenth University Sermon.

Brian W. Hughes Une Source Cachée: Blaise Pascal’s Influence upon John Henry Newman
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
This essay breaks new ground by showing that Blaise Pascal exerted a greater influence upon John Henry Newman than scholars have previously acknowledged. Drawing upon recently discovered unpublished information, this essay traces connections between Pascal’s intuitive mind and Newman’s view of implicit reasoning and suggests overlaps between these two thinkers on such topics as the way implicit reasoning operates, the role of evidences in faith, and the need for ethics to guide good reasoning.

Michael Keating Professors versus Tutors: Pusey and Vaughan at Oxford
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
After Newman’s decision to become a Roman Catholic in 1845, Oxford witnessed a fierce battle over the future of the university: would Oxford remain a Christian and Anglican institution, or would it become a purely national, and secular, endeavor? On the Anglican side, the most weighty protagonist was Newman’s former colleague, Edward Pusey. Among those arguing for a national and secular university was Henry Halford Vaughan. In the early 1850s, Pusey and Vaughan engaged in a written controversy, in which they respectively championed a tutorial and a professorial model of learning. However, the issues at stake were much broader than mere pedagogy, and went to the heart of the nature of the institution as a whole.

Adam Stewart John Henry Newman and Andrew Martin Fairbairn: Philosophical Scepticism and the Efficacy of Reason in The Contemporary Review Exchange
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
This essay examines the contrasting conceptualizations of reason in the thought of John Henry Newman and Andrew Martin Fairbairn in their articles published in The Contemporary Review in 1885. This essay articulates both Fairbairn’s charge of philosophical scepticism against Newman as well as Newman’s defense of his position and concomitantly details Fairbairn’s and Newman’s competing notions of the efficacy of reason to provide reliable knowledge of God. The positions of Fairbairn and Newman remain two of the most important perspectives on the role of reason in the acquisition of knowledge about God in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Christian theology.

Robert Saley Two Models of Figural Historiography: Newman and de Lubac
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
This essay investigates the problem of reconciling contingent historical facts and immutable dogma in light of two different models of figural historiography, presented respectively in John Henry Newman’s Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine and Henri de Lubac’s Catholicism: A Study of Dogma in Relation to the Corporate Destiny of Mankind. Although Newman and de Lubac’s approaches to history were quite different, they are fundamentally complementary.
