The religious leader John Henry Newman (1801-1890) started his long career as a devout Protestant; he later became the head of a new movement of Catholic ideas within the Church of England, and finally joined the Catholic Church. He began a new epoch in the study of religious faith. In this classic short study, reissued with a new preface to celebrate Newman's beatification, Owen Chadwick examines the many aspects of Newman's thought and writings, especially his views about faith, knowledge, and education.
Owen Chadwick was Regius Professor of Modern History at the University of Cambridge and Master of Selwyn College, Cambridge. He is the author of numerous books on Church history and was General Editor of the Oxford History of the Christian Church along with his brother, Henry Chadwick.
