APOLOGIA PRO VITA SUA

Author: John Henry Kardinal Newman
Publisher: Media Maria Verlag
ISBN: 9783945401651
Release Date: 2014-07-27
Genre: Religion

Die Apologia ist zweifellos einer der größten literarischen und spirituellen Klassiker. Der Autor berichtet über die Geschichte seiner Konversion, angefangen von den Erfahrungen in seiner Kindheit bis er schließlich - nach Jahren des Studiums und der Abwägung - mit Überzeugung der römisch-katholischen Kirche beitrat. Als anglikanischer Theologe an der Universität von Oxford kämpfte er zunächst gegen den beginnenden Liberalismus in seiner Kirche. Durch sein Studium der Kirchenväter begann John Henry Newman, sich mit den Grundprinzipien des Glaubens zu beschäftigen. Er veröffentlichte Traktate, um den konservativen anglikanischen Glauben zu begründen, wurde aber deshalb von den Bischöfen stark angegriffen. Als Folge gab er sämtliche Ämter auf und zog sich nach Littlemore zurück. In einem langen und tiefgründigen Denkprozess erkannte John Henry Newman, dass nur die römisch-katholische Kirche mit den Entwicklungen der Glaubenslehre auf der Lehre der Urkirche basiert. Dies war der Beginn seiner Hinwendung zum katholischen Glauben. Er berichtet in einer dokumentarischen Darstellung von der ganzen Tragik seines Übertritts. Mit akribischer Sorgfalt lässt der Verfasser die Quellen sprechen. Dieses Werk lässt John Henry Newman als sensiblen und zurückhaltenden Menschen und großen Denker erkennen.
