Rise and Progress of Universities and Benedictine Essays

Rise and Progress of Universities and Benedictine Essays

John Henry Cardinal Newman
Introduction and Notes by Mary Katherine Tillman

Rise and Progress of Universities and Benedictine Essays contains a selection of publications from the middle (1854-56) and late (1858-59) periods of John Henry Newman’s association with the Catholic University of Ireland. The Rise and Progress of Universities consists of the twenty articles first published in the Catholic University Gazette from 1854-56. The last two essays of this volume, the Benedictine Essays, originally appeared in The Atlantis, which Newman instituted specifically for the publication of research by his faculty.

An introduction to this volume, written by noted Newman scholar Mary Katherine Tillman, emphasizes the integral relation between the Rise and Progress of Universities essays on the historical development of universities, and Newman’s “bare and necessary idea” of a university, as set forth in his seminal work, The Idea of a University.

Mary Katherine Tillman is professor emerita in the Program of Liberal Studies at the University of Notre Dame.

“Tillman’s introduction explains how The Rise and Progress (1854-56) completes the Newman classic The Idea of a University (1852) by providing the creative history of ‘the university venture.’ Tillman celebrates the Benedictine Essays (1858-59) as a unique literary achievement.” —Theological Studies
