Blessed John Henry Newman, the Convert
Catholicism: The Pivotal Players Series
A towering theological figure behind Vatican II and author of the seminal theological classic, On The Development of Doctrine. Newman’s other well known work, Apologia Pro Vita Sua, traces his own religious and theological development. It was written, in part, to defend his integrity against the accusation of a popular novelist, that Newman had been corrupted by his conversion to Roman Catholicism, an accusation that Newman knew was widely held. Blessed Newman was beatified in 2010 by Pope Benedict XVI.
