John Henry Newman

Fecha de nacimiento: 21. Febrero 1801
Fecha de muerte: 11. Agosto 1890

John Henry Newman, C.O. fue un presbítero anglicano convertido al catolicismo en 1845, más tarde fue elevado a la dignidad de cardenal por el papa León XIII y beatificado en 2010 en una ceremonía que presidió el Papa Benedicto XVI en el Reino Unido. En su juventud fue una importante figura del Movimiento de Oxford, el cual aspiraba a que la Iglesia de Inglaterra volviera a sus raíces católicas. Sus estudios le llevaron a convertirse a la fe de la Iglesia Católica. Durante ambos períodos, tanto como anglicano como católico, Newman escribió importantes libros, entre ellos Vía Media, Ensayo sobre el Desarrollo de la Doctrina Cristiana, Apologia Pro Vita Sua, y Grammar of Assent. Sus restos se encuentran actualmente enterrados en el pequeño cementerio católico de Rednal, cerca de Birmingham, pero está previsto que sean inhumados de nuevo y trasladados al Oratorio de Birmingham.

Frases John Henry Newman

„La llamaron Libertad, y literalmente la adoraron como a una divinidad. Parecería increíble que aquellos mismos hombres que se desembarazaron de toda religión terminasen adorando, en son de burla o por superstición, una nueva e insensata deidad de su invención, si no fuese porque los sucesos son tan recientes y notorios.“

—  John Henry Newman

„The more I read of Athanasius, Theodoret, etc, the more I see that the ancients did make the Scriptures the basis of their belief.“

To Richard Hurrell Froude, August 23, 1835.
Letters and Correspondence of John Henry Newman During His Life in the English Church, 1890, Anne Mozley, ed., Longmans’s Green & Co., London, New York, Volume 2, p. 113. http://books.google.com/books?id=uak8AAAAYAAJ&pg=PA113&dq=%22the+more+i+read+of+athanasius,+theodoret%22&hl=en&ei=CeBlTqH1K4m2sQL91pm3Cg&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=2&ved=0CC8Q6AEwAQ#v=onepage&q=%22the%20more%20i%20read%20of%20athanasius%2C%20theodoret%22&f=false
Contexto: The more I read of Athanasius, Theodoret, etc, the more I see that the ancients did make the Scriptures the basis of their belief. The only question is, would they have done so in another point besides the θεολογία (theology), etc, which happened in the early ages to be in discussion? I incline to say the Creed is the faith necessary to salvation, as well as to Church communion, and to maintain that Scripture, according to the Fathers, is the authentic record and document of this faith.
It surely is reasonable that 'necessary to salvation' should apply to the Baptismal Creed: 'In the name of,' etc (vid. He who believeth etc.). Now the Apostles' Creed is nothing but this; for the Holy Catholic Church, etc [in it] are but the medium through which God comes to us. Now this θεολογία, I say, the Fathers do certainly rest on Scripture, as upon two tables of stone. I am surprised more and more to see how entirely they fall into Hawkins’s theory even in set words, that Scripture proves and the Church teaches. http://books.google.com/books?id=JbwJVBOvECwC&pg=PA66&dq=%22that+the+sacred+text+was+never+intended+to+teach+doctrine,+but+only+to+prove+it%22&hl=en&ei=k-RlTq__FOStsQKOwrCzCg&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=3&ved=0CDMQ6AEwAg#v=onepage&q=%22that%20the%20sacred%20text%20was%20never%20intended%20to%20teach%20doctrine%2C%20but%20only%20to%20prove%20it%22&f=false
I believe it would be extremely difficult to show that tradition is ever considered by them (in matters of faith) more than interpretative of Scripture. It seems that when a heresy rose they said at once ‘That is not according to the Church's teaching,’ i. e. they decided it by the praejudicium [N. B. prescription] of authority.
Again, when they met together in council, they brought the witness of tradition as a matter of fact, but when they discussed the matter in council, cleared their views, etc., proved their power, they always went to Scripture alone. They never said 'It must be so and so, because St. Cyrian says this, St. Clement explains in his third book of the "Paedagogue," etc.' and with reason; for the Fathers are a witness only as one voice, not in individual instances, or, much less, isolated passages, but every word of Scripture is inspired and available.
