Throughout his career, John Henry Newman (1801-1890) remained a committed believer in the value of education. Delivered initially as a series of lectures when he was rector of the newly-established Catholic University of Ireland, his Discourses (1852) inspired a generation of young and talented Catholic scholars.
In 1854, Father John Henry Newman, future Cardinal of the Roman Catholic Church, entered the new Catholic University in Dublin as Rector - a post he held for four years.

These eight discourses contained herein are of special interest as a turning point in his long and brilliant career as a leading Catholic theologian.

His Parochial and Plain Sermons (1834-42) is considered the best sermons in the English language. In A Grammar Of Assent (1870) is his remarkable study on religious knowledge and certainty. Newman was made a Cardinal in 1877.
