Overview


From 1824 to 1843 Newman was an active clergyman of the Church of England, entering the pulpit about 1,270 times during that period. Newman published 217 of the sermons which he wrote during those years; a further 246 sermons survive in manuscript form in the Archives of Birmingham Oratory--some only as fragments but the majority as full texts. This is the first of a projected five-volume edition of Newman's previously unpublished sermons. The texts have been transcribed accurately and clearly for ease of reading, with sufficient editorial comment to clarify their theological content and historical background.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"The transcription of the 43 manuscripts in this first volume is magnificent....Scholars will probably delight in this fresh body of material showing Newman at work."--Theological Studies

"If the rest of the series measures up to Dom Murray's careful editing here, it will be the standard for such collections in the future."--Choice

"Murray has produced a magnificent collection, accomplishing his aim of combining easy reading with an editorial apparatus that reveals the theological development and historical situation of the sermons....This book constitutes a fundamental research instrument for Newman scholars."--Journal of Religion

"Newman scholars are indebted to the excellent editorial work of Placid Murray."--Critical Review
