John Henry Newman

Oxford University Press

Archbishop Paul Cullen was in Rome for almost a year to participate in the solemn definition of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception. He was also there to defend his pro-government policy against Irish nationalists. While in Rome, he wrote to Newman to warn him to keep the university free of Young Irelandism. Newman did little to acknowledge this warning, rather, he assured Cullen of excluding politics in the institution. Cullen did not reply immediately. Instead, he wrote to Rome complaining of Newman's lack of practicality and wished that Newman not be made bishop until the university was properly established. Newman realised that Cullen blamed him for whatever went wrong in the university. Cullen assumed that Newman would leave the Birmingham Oratory or transfer it to Dublin. By the time Newman returned to Dublin, he had just heard of an alarming new development in the relations between the two Oratories.
