Overview

Apologia Pro Vita Sua by John Henry Newman

Apologia Pro Vita Sua (Latin: A defence of one's life) is
the classic defence of the religious opinions of John Henry Newman, published in 1864 in response to what he saw as an unwarranted attack on himself, the
Catholic priesthood, and Roman Catholic doctrine by Charles Kingsley. The work
quickly became a bestseller and has remained in print to this day. The work was
tremendously influential in turning public opinion for Newman, and in
establishing him as one of the foremost exponents of Catholicism in England

About the Author

John Henry Newman (1801-1890) has been described by The Guardian as 'the most influential and revered English-speaking religious thinker and spiritual writer since the reformation.' A leader of the 19th Century Oxford Movement that sought to returban the Church of England to the Catholic Church, he was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI in 2010.

APOLOGIA PRO VITA SUA: BEING ENTITLED "WHAT, THEN, DOES DR. NEWMAN MEAN?" " Commit thy way to the Lord, and trust in Him, and He will do it. And He will bring forth thy justice as the light, and thy judgment as the noon-day." BY JOHN HENRY NEWMAN, D.D. PART VI. HISTORY OF MY RELIGIOUS OPINIONS. LONDON: LONGMAN, GREEN, LONGMAN, ROBERTS, AND GREEN. Price Two Shillings and Sixpence. PART VI. HISTORY OF MY RELIGIOUS OPINIONS. PART VI. HISTORY OF MY RELIGIOUS OPINIONS. From the end of 1841, I was on my death-bed, as regards my membership with the Anglican Church, though at the time I became aware of it only by degrees. I introduce what I have to say with this remark, by way of accounting for the character of this remaining portion of my narrative. A death-bed has scarcely a history; it is a tedious decline, with seasons of rallying and seasons of falling back; and since the end is foreseen, or what is called a matter of time, it has little interest for the reader, especially if he has a kind heart. Moreover, it is a season when doors are closed and curtains drawn, and when the sick man neither cares nor is able to record the stages of his malady. I was in these circumstances, except so far as I was not allowed to die in peace, except so far as friends, who had still a full right to come in upon me, and the public world which had not, have given a sort of history to those last four years. But in consequence, my narrative must be in great measure documentary. Letters of mine tofriends have come to me since their deaths; others have been kindly lent me for the occasion; and I have some drafts of letters, and notes of my own, though I have no strictly personal or continuousmemoranda to consult, and have unluckily mislaid some valuable papers.
