(p.213) 5 Crisis
John Henry Newman

Ian Ker

Oxford University Press

In February 1841, John Henry Newman reached the age of 40. He felt it as a watershed and had dismal thoughts on his true self at this age. It was also during this time that the Tract Ninety was released. Newman wanted Thirty-Nine Articles “the doctrine of Anglican theology” to be interpreted in a Catholic sense. Fury descended upon him and bishops condemned his act. He was a man in crisis about his religious beliefs. In his mind, if the Anglican Church he belonged to was not part of the Catholic Church, he knew he could not stay with it any longer. Newman soon after resigned his ministry role, left St. Mary's, and resided with a few colleagues in a village near Oxford.
