Blessed John Henry Newman (1801-1890), was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI in September 2010 and will surely be canonised before too long. Newman stands as a Victorian giant in the field of theology, philosophy and education. Influencing many academic and spiritual disciplines, Newman's writings and his lifelong search for religious truth continue to inspire scholars throughout the world. Liverpool Hope University aims to enhance and extend the reach of John Henry Newman’s life and spirituality with the development of the John Henry Newman Studies Project, an international forum for research and academic study of the meaning of Newman’s thought and work.

English Catholic priest and Cardinal.

Newman was born in London and educated at Oxford, ordained as an Anglican priest in 1825. He became a leader of the Oxford Movement and later in 1842, after publishing a controversial publication arguing that the founding articles of Anglicanism were compatible with Catholicism, converted to Catholicism (1845). He founded The Oratory in 1848, and began his prolific writing career which included poems, sermons, novels, tracts, essays, and an immense output of private correspondence. Pope Leo XIII elevated Newman to Cardinal in 1879; he died in 1890. In 1991, Pope John Paul II declared Newman Venerable, the first formal step in the process of canonization.
