This newly edited version of John Henry Newman's "Apologia Pro Vita Sua" sheds new light on Newman's celebrated account of his passage from the Church of England to the Roman Catholic Church, and it repositions his narrative within the broader spiritual crosscurrents of the Victorian age and the transformative religious journeys of other Victorian intellectuals. Frank Turner is the first historian of Victorian thought, religion, and culture to edit Newman's classic autobiographical narrative. Drawing on extensive research in archives and contemporary printed materials, Turner's powerfully revisionist Introduction reevaluates and challenges the historical adequacy of previous interpretations of Newman's life and of the Apologia itself. He further sets Newman's volume into the context of his response to ultramontane assertions of papal authority in the 1860s. In addition to numerous explanatory annotations to the text, the volume includes an Appendix featuring six important Anglican sermons that provide additional insights into Newman's thought during the years recounted in the Apologia.
This edition of the "Apologia Pro Vita Sua" will require scholars of both Newman's life and of Victorian culture to undertake a major reevaluation of the work.

Frank Turner provides a genuinely new and exciting reading of Newman's much-read Apologia, juxtaposing the historical conditions of nineteenth-century England with Newman's version of them."-George Levine, Rutgers University -- George Levine "In his own life and for the Church, John Henry Newman navigated the narrows between change and tradition, freedom and dogma, conscience and authority. Such tensions split the world still. Newman's masterpiece, as elegantly presented by Frank M. Turner, has never been more relevant."-James Carroll, author of House of War -- James Carroll "An exceptionally fertile and thought-provoking interpretation of both John Henry Newman and his great work."-Colin Barr, The Journal of Ecclesiastical History -- Colin Barr The Journal of Ecclesiastical History "Professor Turner has written a very full and significant Introduction for this new edition of the Apologia. It will be a great addition to the scholarly literature on Newman."-Robert Bruce Mullin, SPRL Professor of History, The General Theological Seminary -- Robert Bruce Mullin
