John Henry Newman (1801-1890) was a significant figure in the religious history of nineteenth century England. Cardinal Newman was a leader of the Oxford Movement which eventually lead to the development of Anglo-Catholicism. No small presence within religious literature, John Henry Newman also wrote a great deal of tracts, hymns, and apologias. Here are collected thirty-two sermons, in Volume II of his "Parochial and Plain Sermons". These sermons are essential to an understanding of Newman's theological development as well as the dynamic changes that occurred within the Catholic Church in the 19th century. A diverse collection, Newman writes on "Faith without Sight", "Self-Contemplation", "The Indwelling Spirit", as well as much more. These sermons were all preached on Sundays by Newman at his Anglican parish, Saint Mary the Virgin, Oxford. Essential to any student of theology and philosophy, these sermons mark a great change in the Anglican and Catholic traditions.
