    Founded in by the National Institute for Newman Studies, the Newman Studies Journal (NSJ) is an interdisciplinary research publication dedicated to the life, work, and thought of John Henry Newman and their relevance for our time. The NSJ welcomes submissions that explore Newman’s life and works, his predecessors, contemporaries and successors, his reception throughout history, and his. Blessed John Henry Newman's thought is especially useful in this regard, since Newman was a skilled philosopher and social critic, as well as a teacher of the faith. His thoughts on the question of truth merit consideration by all serious thinkers, particularly in our age of subjectivism and confusion.

    About Conscience, Consensus, and the Development of Doctrine “Certainly, if I am obliged to bring religion into after-dinner toasts (which indeed does not seem quite the thing), I shall drink — to the Pope, if you please — still, to Conscience first, and to the Pope afterwards.” –John Henry Cardinal Newman. Related to the argument from morality is the argument from conscience, associated with eighteenth-century bishop Joseph Butler and nineteenth-century cardinal John Henry Newman. Newman proposed that the conscience, as well as giving moral guidance, provides evidence of objective moral truths which must be supported by the divine.

    St. John Henry Newman might have wondered how a Catholic of such high standing could think, let alone write down for all to see, such un-Catholic thoughts about a reality so important to the heart of what it is to be human. For Newman, as quoted in his letter to the Duke, conscience is the Law of God “apprehended in the minds of individual. Chapter 5. Apprehension and Assent in the matter of Religion {98} WE are now able to determine what a dogma of faith is, and what it is to believe it. A dogma is a proposition; it stands for a notion or for a thing; and to believe it is to give the assent of the mind to it, as it stands for the one or for the other.

John Henry Newman’s teachings provide a proper grounding for freedom of conscience and for the Catholic Church’s duty to defend the truth, both to its members and to society in general. In both of these ways, Newman prefigured the Church’s Declaration on Religious Freedom, Dignitatis er, Newman and Dignitatis can help us resist the erroneous notion of the free.

Reinhard Hütter's main thesis in this third volume of the Sacra Doctrina series is that John Henry Newman, in his own context of the nineteenth century, a century far from being a foreign one to our own, faced the same challenges as we do today; the problems then and now differ in degree, not in kind.

Hence, Newman's engagement with these problems offers us a prescient and indeed prophetic. John Henry Newman and conscience. Cardinal John Henry Newman took a more intuitionist approach than Aquinas.

Blessed John Henry Cardinal Newman was an important figure in the religious history of England in the 19th century.

This is very good, but I think that the final word on the primacy of conscience in Catholic moral theology was written by John Henry Newman, in his "Letter to the Duke of Norfolk," in which he. Newman’s stance on conscience, then, was not only countercultural but also prophetic.

If persons of faith today are to avoid being tossed here and there by “false liberty of thought” (as Newman called it in his Apologia pro Vita Sua), we will have to hold fast to the theonomic understanding of conscience that Newman articulated.
