Marvin R. O’Connell Newman and the Irish Bishops
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
What was the background to Newman’s rectorship of the Catholic University in Dublin? In 1845 the British government proposed to establish three non-denominational colleges in Ireland; some of the Irish bishops felt that it would be possible to work out a modus vivendi with the government. A slight majority of the bishops, however, opposed these so-called “godless” colleges and voted at the Synod of Thurles in 1850, to found a Catholic University in Ireland—a country that had been repeatedly decimated by poverty and oppression, and a few years earlier the potato famine (1845-48).

Mary Katherine Tillman An Introduction to “The Dream Of Gerontius” by Cardinal John Henry Newman and Sir Edward Elgar
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
Newman’s dramatic poem, “The Dream of Gerontius” (1865), was set to music by Edward Elgar (1857-1934) in 1900. This essay brings out the sympathy of mind and heart between poet and composer, and perhaps between them both and the listener of today, as well as the universality and depth of the human stake in some kind of personal and peopled life after death.

Avery Cardinal Dulles Newman In Retrospect
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
This article, originally the concluding chapter of Cardinal Dulles’ recent book on Newman’s theology, provides an insightful discussion of Newman’s relevance for today by comparing his theological thought with a series of themes that were subsequently treated by the Second Vatican Council (1962-65): from revelation and faith, scripture and tradition, and the development of doctrine, to questions of ecclesiology, especially infallibility, the role of the laity, and social-political issues.“After nearly two centuries, the writings of Newman continue to have a very modern ring,” Dulles writes.

Donald W. Wuerl Academic Freedom and the University
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
This article contrasts a secular definition of “academic freedom” with a Catholic model, where freedom of discussion and investigation is one component of a wider process that leads to the Church’s judgment about a particular teaching. Three questions arise about academic freedom: (1) its purpose and goal, (2) its limits, and (3) its relationship to the Church. While there is sometimes tension between some people and the teaching office, fruitful doctrinal development usually takes place within the—sometimes heated—world of theological discussion. A postscript describes the mandatum as a concrete expression of the intrinsic role that the magisterium has in Catholic theology and the role of the university and faculty in relation to the wider church.

John T. Ford John Henry Newman: A Spiritual Guide for the Twenty-First Century?
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
Newman was a prolific writer, but one who usually wrote on “call”; sometimes these calls were unexpected, but at other times they were a pastoral responsibility. Such was the case with his sermons, which exhibit four characteristics: biblically based, theologically grounded, circumstantially relevant, and spiritually insightful. As such, his sermons still appeal to readers today.

Stephanie Terril An Implicit Model of “Conception” in the Theological Papers of John Henry Newman on Faith and Certainty
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
In attempting to describe the relationship between reason and faith, Newman repeatedly wrestled with questions concerning the human way of knowing. This article explores Newman’s reflections on the process of “conception” in his theological papers that were unpublished during his lifetime, yet in retrospect can be seen as preparatory steps in his eventual writing of the Grammar of Assent.

Gerard McCarren Are Newman’s “Tests” or “Notes” of Genuine Doctrinal Development Useful Today?
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
Theologians have long appealed to Newman’s Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine as a source for criteria to determine the genuineness of doctrinal developments. After pointing out that Newman changed his terminology from “tests” in the original edition to “notes” in the third edition, this article examines their current criteriological usefulness both in retrospect and in prospect.

Drew Morgan Newman and the Oratorian Idea of Scholarship
abstract | view |  rights & permissions
For Newman the Roman Catholic, the Oratorian way of life resonated with his experience as a fellow of Oriel College, Oxford: the Oratory was a place of stability that provided an opportunity for scholarship. This article examines three aspects of the Oratorian idea of scholarship: the spiritual formation of the intellect; the role of the laity in a Catholic university; and the importance of personal influence inevangelization—educational ideals that are as fundamentally important today as they were in Newman’s time.
