Volume IV: The Church and Miscellaneous Sermons at St Mary's and Littlemore
Author: John Henry Newman
Publisher: Oxford University Press
A scholarly edition of thirty-nine sermons by John Henry Newman. Part I includes 12 sermons preached on the subject of the Church between 1824-1837 including the first sermon Newman ever preached on high church principles. Part II contains a miscellany of twenty-seven sermons preached between 1828 and 1840.
Newman edges closer to Rome, under attack from many quarters. He steps down as editor of the Lives of the English Saints. Days after completing the Essay on Development, he resigns his fellowship of Oriel College and prepares for reception into the Church of Rome.
