John Henry Newman

Ian Ker

Oxford University Press

In 1832, John Henry Newman together with his friend William Froude, planned to “systematise a poetry department” for the British Magazine the intention of which would be to highlight certain truths: moral, ecclesiastical, and religious, simply and forcibly, with greater freedom and clarity than had been the case hitherto. Newman subsequently wrote the firstTracts for the Timeson the doctrine of the Apostolic succession. It would be later referred to as Tractarian. Newman was against “putting forth Tracts as a Society”. He was opposed to a formal organisation, arguing that it would be inconsistent to form one without episcopal sanction and thus required a compromise. He stated further that Tracts issued from a formal association would be “weighed and carefully corrected”, but “coming from an individual mind” will surely make an impression.
