MCCLOSKEY III, C.John. ""Liberalism and Newman the anglican: vision and response"". Excerpta e dissertationibus in Sacra Theologia, 6 (1982) :3-73.
Newman's life can properly be described as a life devoted to
fighting religious liberalism, the doctrine that there is no positive
truth in religion, but that one creed is as good as another.
But he did not restrict himself to expose the so-called usurpations
and incongruities of liberalism. He tried simultaneously to
provide Christian Theology with intellectual tools of a historical
and speculative kind in order to anticipate and prevent the distorted
reasonings and objections of liberalism.
The following pages deal with a key aspect of this subject
They should however, be read in the wider scope of the rich
Newmanian thought concerning the doctrines of certitude and development
of Christian dogma.
