SERMONS PREACHED ON VARIOUS OCCASIONS

Vol. IX


John Henry Newman


Introduction and Notes by James Tolhurst DD


John Henry Newman points out in the Preface to the original edition, that his series of Sermons Preached on Various Occasions was 'the result of external circumstances rather than of any set purpose of his own'. The particular external circumstances were the establishment of the Catholic University of Ireland (which accounted for the first eight sermons), the restoration of the Catholic hierarchy in England and Wales (sermons 9 and 10), the Risorgimento in Italy and its repercussions on the papacy (sermon 15) and the death of two friends, Dr Weedall and James Hope Scott (sermons 13 and 14). Newman added his two-part sermon on St Phillip (sermon 12) to make up the total in the first edition.

The sermons on the situation of the Church in England and Wales, and then of the papacy itself in Italy, reflect the tumultuous times of the mid-nineteenth century: a defining of the role of Catholicism in the development of the modern world.
