Apologia Pro Vita Sua: Being a History of His Religious Opinions Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The present edition stresses the literary, humanistic, and religious power of the Apologia, Newman's personal development, and the progress of the Oxford Movement.

Students will be able to place the Apologia in its proper intellectual context by examining it alongside other important documents from the Newman-Kingsley controversy included in this volume: correspondence: Kingsley's pamphlet, "What, Then, Does Dr. Newman Mean?"; Newman's pamphlets "Mr. Kingsley's Mode of Disputation" and "True Mode of Meeting Mr. Kingsley"; and Newman's two Appendices of 1866.

The origin of the Apologia, its contemporary reception, and its present critical fortunes are discussed in studies by Martin J. Svaglic, Walter E. Houghton, Vincent Ferrer Blehl, Lewis E. Gates, Robert A. Colby, Leonard W. Deen, and David J. DeLaura.

A Bibliography is included.

Synopsis:

The text of the Apologia reprinted in this volume is the definitive text, embodying all of Newman's later changes, which reached its final form about 1886. Extensive notes are provided.

Synopsis:

John Henry Newman's conversion to Roman Catholicism rocked the Church of England to its foundation and escalated the spread of virulent anti-catholicism in Victorian England. A rigorous examination of his own religious development, enlivened by touches of satire and sometimes invective, Apologia pro Vita Sua is a spiritual autobiography of great power.
