  John Henry Newman - LoveToKnow 1911
JOHN HENRY NEWMAN (1801-1890), English Cardinal, was born in London on the 21st of February 1801, the eldest son of John Newman, banker, of the firm of Ramsbottom, Newman and Co. The family was understood to be of Dutch extraction, and the name itself, spelt "Newmann" in an earlier generation, further suggests Hebrew origin.
John Henry was the eldest of six children.
But all this time (since 1841) Newman had been under a cloud, so far as concerned the great mass of cultivated Englishmen, and he was now awaiting an opportunity to vindicate his career; and in 1862 he began to prepare autobiographical and other memoranda for the purpose.

John Henry Newman (February 21 1801 August 11 1890), English cardinal, was born in London, the eldest son of John Newman, banker, of the firm of Ramsbottom, Newman and Co. The family was understood to be of Dutch extraction, and the name itself, spelt "Newmann" in an earlier generation, further suggests Hebrew origin.
Newman's first volume, "The Arians of the Fourth Century", is an undigested, but valuable and characteristic, treatise, wholly Alexandrian in tone, dealing with creeds and sects on the lines of the "Economy." As a history it fails; the manner is confused, the style a contrast to his later intensity and directness of expression.
John Henry Newman thus continues in modern literature the Catholic tradition of East and West, sealing it with a martyr's faith and suffering, steadfast in loyalty to the truth, while discerning with a prophet's vision the task of the future.

 John Henry Cardinal Newman - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
John Henry Newman was born in London, the eldest son of John Newman, banker, of the firm of Ramsbottom, Newman and Co. The Newman family was understood to be of Dutch extraction, and the name itself, spelt "Newmann" in an earlier generation, further suggests Hebrew (Jewish) origin.
Newman had a special interest in the publisher Burns and Oates; the owner, James Burns, had published some of the Tractarians, and Burns had himself converted to Roman Catholicism in 1847.
Newman published a revision of the series of pamphlets in book form in 1865; in 1913 a combined critical edition, edited by Wilfrid Ward, was published.

 Boston Collaborative Encyclopedia of Western Theology: John Henry Newman
John Henry Newman was born in England on February 21, 1801 to an Anglican father and a mother with Evangelical leanings.
Newman makes the interesting observation that the perceived problem of a Catholic not being able to question his or her Creed is absurd since to be in doubt about it one would have to cease being Catholic (159).
Newman next takes up a long discussion of inferences in chapter eight the main point of which is that inference is conditional acceptance of a proposition (similar to a theorem) whereas assent is unconditional, absolute, and directed at an object which is true (209-269).

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: John Henry Newman
Newman delivered in the Corn Exchange, Birmingham, his Lectures on the Position of Catholics (he was seldom felicitous in titles of books), and, to George Eliot's amazement, they revealed him as a master of humorous, almost too lively sketches, witty and scornful of the great Protestant tradition.
Newman demanded proof; a correspondence ensued in which Kingsley referred to one of the Oxford Anglican sermons generally; he withdrew his charge in terms that left its injustice unreproved; and thus he brought on himself, in the pamphlet which his adversary published, one of the most cutting replies, ironical and pitiless, known to literature.
Newman's elevation, hailed by the English nation and by Catholics everywhere with unexampled enthusiasm, was rightly compared to that of Bessarion after the Council of Florence.

 Island of Freedom - John Henry Newman
In 1826 Newman was appointed a tutor at Oriel and two years later became vicar of Saint Mary's, the (Anglican) church of the University of Oxford.
Newman began to read systematically the Fathers of the Church and under their influence moved from his earlier evangelicalism to a more catholic ecclesiology, in which he was also encouraged by the influence of Keble and Froude.
Newman's thought was primarily formed by his Oxford classical education, which provided a significant Aristotelean shaping of his epistemology, and the Church Fathers, particularly the Alexandrian Fathers.

 The Newman Center >> John Henry Newman
John Henry Newman (1801-1890) was an English clergyman, who was leader of the Oxford movement, and cardinal after his conversion to the Roman Catholic church.
Newman was profoundly influenced by the sermon "On the National Apostasy," preached at St. Mary's by John Keble.
In 1873 Newman published The Idea of a University Defined in which he defined the function of a university as the training of the mind rather than the diffusion of practical information.

John Henry Newman — a writer unsurpassed in style and clarity, a preacher of unparalleled power and grace — the most famous and, perhaps, the most influential Anglican minister in all of England, did the unthinkable: he joined the Catholic Church.

 Faith JAN-FEB 1999 The Conversion of John Henry Newman
John Henry Newman, a noted scholar of classics and patristics and a famous preacher, was one of the most eloquent and learned spokesmen of the High Church view, which he defended with many years’ worth of sermons, lectures, and pamphlets, including the controversial series Tracts for the Times, authored jointly by several Oxford sympathizers.
Newman, who had rarely seen eye to eye with the members of his family, had driven a final wedge between himself and the companions of his childhood, a fact that caused him intense anguish.
Newman’s quest for the true faith set him on a pilgrimage that left the congregation of St. Mary’s and the happiness of Littlemore behind; the poet Keble remained an Anglican by choice and temperament to the end.

 John Henry Newman: His Developing Faith, His Life as a Catholic
John Henry Newman--a writer unsurpassed in style and clarity, a preacher of unparalleled power and grace--the most famous and, perhaps, the most influential Anglican minister in all of England, did the unthinkable: he joined the Roman Catholic Church.
For years, Newman had been developing his thesis of the Via Media: this was an idea that had been propounded by some Anglican theologians in earlier times, that the Anglican Church was "the middle way" between the Catholic Church on one hand and the Protestant churches on the other.
As Newman and his colleagues drew it out, the Anglican Church had kept, and should continue to keep, the doctrinal heritage of the early Christians, avoiding both the doctrinal heresies of the Protestants and the doctrinal and devotional excesses of the Catholics.

 John Henry Newman: A Brief Biography
Newman moved from Trinity to Oriel College after receiving his bachelor's degree in 1820, becoming a fellow in 1822 and a tutor in 1826.
Newman supported Hawkins' candidacy, but it soon became clear that the two held different views about the responsibilities of a college tutor: Newman believed that the tutorship carried some pastoral duties, while Hawkins maintained that the tutor/student relationship should be strictly academic.
Newman became involved a few months later and was the Movement's primary spokesman, promoting its doctrinal and moral concerns through his editorship of the British Critic, his contributions to Tracts for the Times, and his weekly sermons at St. Mary's.

Newman's controversy with Kingsley provoked the composition of the Apologia, but the work proved to be, as Newman soon understood, a much more significant work than a simple piece of apologetic.
My imagination was stained by the effects of this doctrine up to the year 1843; it had been obliterated from my reason and judgment at an earlier date; but the thought remained upon me as a sort of false conscience.
