Newman and the Alexandrian Fathers

This chapter shows three different stages of Newman's life across the 19th century. Whether as leader of the Oxford Movement, as founder of the Littlemore community and Birmingham Oratory, or eventually as Cardinal, each stage shaped his writing on the Alexandrian Fathers. The first period (broadly covering the 1830s) came to an end with Newman's alienation from the Anglican Church after Number 90 of the Tracts for the Times. The second period (the 1840s and 1850s) ended with alienation from the Catholic Church after ‘On Consulting the Faithful’, which forced Newman in the third period (the 1860s and 1870s) to turn to scholastic theology. By examining his view of doctrine in each period, a general introduction to Newman's writings on the Fathers is given.
