Editorial Reviews


"King has done this area of Newman scholarship a real service. His book will be indispensable for future students who want to investigate these matters. His attention to detail is formidable."--Roderick Strange, The Catholic Historical Review

"King accomplishes what historians of theology often only attempt: he makes discoveries by patient textual collation, locates them deftly in various biographical and institutional contexts, then draws from them new light on persistent theological questions."--Mark Jordan, Anglican Theological Review

"Read and be amazed."--New Blackfriars

"It [Newman and the Alexandrian Fathers] is to be welcomed, as it brings to the fore an important and under-appreciated area of Newman, an area that many who read Newman find least comfortable."--Irish Theological Quarterly

"Benjamin King has entered the company of a small number of recent scholars determined that the life and thought of John Henry Newman will be addressed through critical scholarship rather than hagiography."--Journal of Ecclesiastical History

"A substantive study of . . . how Newman reread the Fathers in his Catholic days."--Theological Studies

"King has done a careful and impressive job of documenting how Newman's revised translations of Athanasius in the 1870s reflect his desire to square the Alexandrian patriarch with later, Latin orthodoxy of a peculiarly neo-Thomist flavor."--Journal of Early Christian Studies

By Father Mike on June 17, 2011
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book is a must-have for any devotee of either John Henry Newman or the Alexandrian Fathers. The author has assembled new insights into Newman's mind and has organized a very readable history of the late Cardinal's theological development. Highly recommended!
