Author Code: EJHN

Born: Feb. 21, 1801 - London, England

Educated at Great Ealing School, Newman was converted to Calvinism by the age of fifteen. He then studied at Trinity College, Oxford where he received his BA in 1821. He then read for a fellowship at Oriel College which he received in 1822. He was made a deacon in the Anglican church at Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford in 1824 and the following year was ordained a priest in Christ Church. He then spent two years as the curate of St. Clement's Church, Oxford, followed by a year as the vice-principal of St. Alban Hall. In 1828, he was appointed vicar of St. Mary's University Church. Over the next few years, Newman was involved in various confrontations which ended with his resignation in 1832. He then travelled in Europe and during this time wrote a number of poems that were published in 1833. Newman's writing skills were superb and are showcased in his autobiographical Apologia Pro Vita Sua (1864). His conversion to Catholicism took place in 1845. In 1851, he founded University College, Dublin and became its first rector. He became a cardinal in 1879. In 2010, Newman was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI. During his time in the Catholic church, Newman was often involved in controversy and accused of doctrinal unorthodoxy. In the last years of his life he continued working in the Birmingham Oratory. He died of pneumonia at 89. His works include Lectures on Justification (1838), Oxford University Sermons (1843), Loss and Gain (1848), Difficulties of Anglicans (1850), Callista (1855), The Dream of Gerontius (1865), Five Letters (1875), Select Treatises of St. Athanasius (1883) and Development of Religious Error (1885).
