John Henry Newman: Doctrine and Development

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the contribution of clergyman John Henry Newman to the Oxford Movement and to the Catholic revival in Anglicanism in England during the 1830s. Newman delivered his University sermon titled ‘Personal Influence the Means of Propagating the Truth’ in January 1832. His role and influence in the Oxford Movement is inseparable from his personal pilgrimage from the Church of England to the Church of Rome and he was known for his logical subtlety. In his Tamworth Reading Room Letters, he suggested that the heart is commonly reached not only by reason but also by the imagination.
