John Henry Newman

Oxford University Press

Newman was elected an honorary fellow by his old college, Trinity, and returned to Oxford again after many years. And at the beginning of December 1878, the Duke of Norfolk personally suggested to the Pope that Rome formally recognise Newman's loyalty and orthodoxy. The offer was unusual because Newman was neither a bishop nor resident in Rome. Newman was elevated to Cardinal by Pope Leo XIII. Newman's health deteriorated and he celebrated mass for the last time on Christmas Day 1889. He died of pneumonia on August 11, 1890 and was buried at Rednal in the grave of Ambrose St. John. On his memorial-tablet were inscribed the words “Ex umbris et imaginibus in veritatem” (Out of unreality into reality).
