NEWMAN, John Henry


NEWMAN, John Henry
(1801-1890)
   one of the most controversial and important English ANGLICAN theologians of the nineteenth century who eventually became a Roman CATHOLIC Cardinal (1879). His Apologia Pro Vita Sua (1864) is a spiritual classic while The Idea of a University Defined (1873) is still read by educationalists. One of the authors of Tracts for the Times (1834-1841) he sought to return the CHURCH OF ENGLAND to a medieval theology but after the publication of Tract 90 (1841), he abandoned the OXFORD MOVEMENT for Catholicism.
