What is Newman’s Thoughts

Newman’s Thoughts is an educational initiative from the Newman Institute for Catholic Thought & Culture to encourage the reading of our patron, St. John Henry Newman, and to bring the thoughts and ideas from his writings into the cultural conversation of today’s Church and the broader culture.

Season 1: The Idea of a University

Season One of Newman’s Thoughts begins with St. John Henry Newman’s masterpiece, The Idea of a University. For those who want the physical book, we will be using the Cluny Media edition with its Introduction by Dr. Don Briel, founding advisor to the Newman Institute.
