John Henry Newman and the Imagination (Paperback)Bernard Dive (author)
- Out of stock
John Henry Newman was keenly aware of the imagination in the religious life, and indeed this was the basis of his originality. But what made Newman's imagination unique? It was the gift of Newman to 'realise' the unseen, to create compelling images of the invisible world, and it was a gift that was essential to his creativity as a thinker and literary stylist. Here at last is a convincing study of the character and force of Newman's imagination.
This book explores the intersection between theology and the imagination in Newman's thought. It gives exceptional insights into Victorian culture by examining a figure who was one of the most eminent 'cultural apostates' of his age. Indeed, Dive provides new perspectives on the complex dynamics of the culture of Victorian England.
