Cardinal John Henry Newman The Idea of a University
The Idea of a University. As the leader of the famous Oxford Movement, Cardinal John Henry Newman was eminently qualified to write such a book as The Idea of a University. In it, Newman poses a number of critical questions: What is the purpose of education? What does it mean to be educated? What is the role of a university? And where does Catholicism fit in? His insightful discussion highlights the proper relationships between religion, learning, culture, and politics which should be fostered in all universities.
