Excerpt from An Index to the Works of John Henry Cardinal Newman

I Claim that this Index be tried by these three questions: 'Did Newman say this?'; 'Did he ever unsay it, and if so, where?'; 'Are there any notable sayings of his not brought into due prominence?'

This is not a Concordance, or Onomasticon: it is meant to be a guide to Newman's thought to the changes of that thought, or, as he would have said, to the 'development' which his thought ran through, from the first public utterances of the Fellow of Oriel to the last words of the aged Priest of the Oratory. In later life he republished sundry of his Anglican works, with notes not infrequently opposed to the text. The chief retractaions I have indicated by a phrase familiar to readers of St. Thomas, sed contra.

To avoid cross-references, I have often entered the same saying under several headings. I do not warrant the words given being the exact words of Newman except where they are put in inverted commas.

The figures throughout refer to the pages of the standard edition published by Messrs. Longmans, the latest at the time I write. Thus Apo. 360 is Apologia p. 360, ed. 1908. The reader is referred to the following list of Works Indexed.
