Tradition and Scripture

Tradition is the life of the Church. Keble, like Pusey and Newman, believed that the Bible could only be approached with the proper spirit of reverence when it as approached not through our fallen intellect alone, but with the eyes of the ancient and undivided Church for which the texts were written and by which they were canonised.

What is Puseyism?

This week we shall be looking at the Catholic heritage underlying Newman's career as an Anglican. Writing in 1840. Pusey gave a useful definition of the essentials of what we call Tractarianism.

The Church & Scripture

Usually we look at a theme carried across several of Newman's sermons, but this week we shall be focussing on one sermon Difficulties in the scripture proof of the Catholic Creed from the 1838 Tract 85. The text here is from the 1872 Discussions and Arguments volume in the collected works.

St Paul and the Apostles

For Newman, the supposed differences between St Paul and the Apostles have been much over-stated, and if we read in faith, we see two sets of independent witness to the Risen Christ.
