Module Description

John Henry Newman was a complex man who left a complex legacy. In his life he was both loved and admired, hated and feared; since his death he continues to inspire conservatives and progressives alike. This module reflects on his long life and some of his key writings as it explores Newman’s capacity to provoke such sharply divergent responses.

Andrew Pierce: has a background in historical theology and is an Assistant Professor in the Irish School of Ecumenics, TCD. He is involved in a variety of ecumenical projects – both grassroots and academic – and is particularly interested in how ideas about, and experiences of, place impact on religious self-understanding.
