SummaryThis course looks at the life and thought of John Henry Newman against the background of the Victorian Church and Victorian society. Newman had a profound impact in his own lifetime on both the Anglican and Roman Catholic Churches, and the influence of his thought is felt today far beyond the confines of those two communions. His engagement with questions of historicity and with the rapidly developing scientific thought and biblical criticism of the later nineteenth century did much to propel the Churches into the modern world. We will follow the outline of Newmans life, reading, week by week, sections from his most important and influential works, including the Apologia pro Vita Sua, An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine, Loss and Gain, and The Idea of a University.
