John Henry Newman (1801-90) was brought up in the Church of England in the Evangelical tradition. An Oxford graduate and Fellow of Oriel College, he was appointed Vicar of St Mary's Oxford in 1828; from 1839 onwards he began to have doubts about the claims of the Anglican Church and in 1845 he was received into the Roman Catholic Church. He was made a Cardinal in 1879. His influence on both the restoration of Roman Catholicism in England and the advance of Catholic ideas in the Church of England was profound.
This volume covers a crucially important and significant period in Newman's life. The Church of England bishops' continuing condemnation of Tract 90 - plus Pusey's two-year suspension for preaching a university sermon on the Real Presence - are major factors in Newman resigning as Vicar of St Mary's, Oxford. His doubts about the Church of England are deeper and stronger than ever, and he is moving closer to Rome. William Lockhart's sudden defection to Rome in August 1843 precipitates his resignation. He preaches his final Anglican sermon, 'The Parting of Friends', and retires into lay communion at Littlemore. The first edition of University Sermons, including the celebrated sermon on theological development, virtually sells out within a fortnight.

MEDIA REVIEWS

UNEDITED UK REVIEW: "Review from previous edition It is a massive, superbly edited collection, one that impressively reveals the range and continuity of Newman's correspondence."--Thought


UNEDITED UK REVIEW: "The Letters themselves will never be superseded as biography and portrait. It is wonderful to live with Newman day by day and almost hour by hour. The character there revealed is so consistent, the words so inevitable, the narrative so vivid, there is no greyness as of printed pages but everywhere life and colour."--The Heythrop Journal


"A ready criterion to bring to these recently discovered letters is to ask, 'So what's new?'. . . We learn a few things. . . but we gain much more from the exhaustive scholarship of Francis McGrath, whose footnotes to the letters and whose 150 pages of appendices make this concluding volume to the entire series a bookshelf treasure trove." --The Thomist
