O'DONNELL, Stephen J. ""The theology and reality of the laity in Newman"". Excerpta e dissertationibus in Sacra Theologia, 12 (1987) : 431-495.
It may come as a surprise that of all the studies that have been
done on Newman, relatively few have focused on his ideas about the
laity. Those studies which do discuss this theme usually limit their
treatment to the sensus Jidelium. Moreover, they tend merely to comment
on the subject instead of treating it in a systematic way.
In order to do justice to the subject of Newman and the laity, it
seems necessary first of all to take into account all of Newman's
works, including his letters, and not to limit our field to his famous
article On Consulting the Faithful in Matters of Doctrine. We will
also want to consider some works of systematic theology, which are
not usually used in this type of study, but which are necessary to
situate Newman's thought in the appropriate theological framework.
