Essays Critical and Historical Volume 2

Nicholas Schofield

This is the second volume in which John Henry Newman collected together articles which he had written as an Anglican during the Oxford Movement and revised and republished as a Catholic in 1871.

All but one are from the years immediately leading up to his conversion to the Catholic Church in 1845, thus giving a fascinating snapshot of the movement of his mind at this crucial period. The final essay was his first published article as a Catholic in 1846 in which he appeals to other members of the Oxford Movement to recognise where their Catholic theology should lead them – to Rome.

The Editor has provided a detailed Introduction to each Essay, comprehensive footnotes to the text, explaining Newman’s numerous historical and other references, and a Textual Appendix giving all the variants between the original 1840s texts and Newman’s 1871 revisions.
