John Henry Newman’s theological work is no dogmatics in its traditional continental sense. Newman even refused to be a “theologian”. Participants are encouraged to get to know an excellent, pioneering theology which shall serve as a productive inspiration for contemporary times. This is particularly true for Newman’s reading of the “Signs of the time”, his interest for the Church Fathers and the Bible and his personal philosophical tradition (i.e. English). All of these were connected with his personal spirituality and companionship. An important inspiration for contemporary theology.

Mankind is facing severe changes which can be traced to 18th century England. In 19th century John Henry Newman (1878 Cardinal Newman) set the course both for the Anglican and the Catholic church, tracing new paths. The seminar will discuss important themes of his work: diagnosis of the times and companionship, theology and biography, faith and personal consent, development of doctrine, university/theology and the sciences, the church between ultimate authority (primacy of jurisdiction and infallibility) and the constitutive importance of “offices” (theology and the sensus fidei), the unconditional importance of one’s own conscience as the ultimative authority in history.
