The Early Modern Roots of Newman’s Religious World

John Henry Newman’s life spanned nearly the entire nineteenth century, and his influence extended into the twentieth century and beyond. Yet, Newman studies stands to benefit from a greater analysis of the religious world in which Newman operated and what gave rise to that world. The Spring Symposium will therefore seek to shed light on the broader ecclesial and intellectual context that was formative for Newman’s own time period, life, and work. What does a more thorough exploration of Tridentine reform, Early Modern Scholasticism, and the Enlightenment reveal about a figure like Newman operating within Anglicanism and Catholicism in the nineteenth century?
