The Idea Idearum in Newman and Bouyer

An important theological theme in the Christian tradition is that of the divine ideas or logoi in the mind or Word of God by which God knows and loves in himself eternally all the ways that creatures can or do participate in a living likeness of him.

Pusey House, Oxford Joins NINS Digital Collections

For readers who are interested in using the Pusey House collections for their research, here is an overview of what we have. Only original materials have been digitized, so the digital collection is slightly smaller than the physical one, but every authentic Newman item we have should now be accessible online.

Catholic Devotion to the Mother of God: What Newman’s Letter to Pusey (1866) tells us about Mariology and Marian Piety

Pusey’s appraisal of Mariology—a polemic containing a mixture of historical, theological and anecdotal evidence—was, on the whole, untrue and mostly a caricature; yet as Newman would be forced to admit in his formal published reply to Pusey in 1866, the Letter to Pusey, there was partial veracity to his claim that at times Mariology, in some of its devotional outpourings, has obscured devotion to God, especially God’s loving mediation brought to humanity through the Incarnation.

The Spanish Edition of Newman’s Letter to Pusey

Oikonomia and History: Newman’s Critique of Henry Hart Milman and the Historicism of Ernst Troeltsch

The dialogue I seek to construct between Troeltsch and Newman hinges particularly on Newman’s reception of the patristic concept of oikonomia.

Why Lingard Didn’t Like Newman

Lingard remarked upon Newman’s career several times in his correspondence, usually with a mixture of suspicion and curiosity.

A Collaborative Digitization Project between the National Institute of Newman Studies, Pittsburgh and the Birmingham Archdiocesan Archives, England

As an archivist, I was incredibly excited by the platform and conceptualization of access that NINS was creating, showing a forward-thinking vision that was almost unheard of at the time.

Reading Louis Bouyer with Keith Lemna: A Review of The Apocalypse of Wisdom

The primary purpose of Lemna’s masterful book The Apocalypse of Wisdom: Louis Bouyer’s Theological Recovery of the Cosmos is to shed light on the “twists and turns of the path Bouyer charts in Cosmos” (xiii).

Pusey’s 1843 Sermon on the Eucharist: A Rejected Eucharistic Theology

This article aims to understand why a defense of a corporeal, real presence of Christ in the sacrament was problematic in nineteenth-century England.
