Newman’s 1826 Essay, The Miracles of Scripture, and the Role of Witness
The Beginning of his Personal Theology
Newman’s theology is known for its personalism: Newman was concerned not only with a notional or intellectual appeal, but also with eliciting a real assent from his audience. This article locates the beginnings of that “personalist theology” in his pastoral ministry at St.Clement’s (Oxford) and his first theological treatise, The Miracles of Scripture.
