Abstract and Keywords
Newman’s interest in the Oratory went hand in hand from the start with his deep attraction to the figure of St Philip Neri, founder of the first Oratory in Rome in 1575, whom he would adopt as his patron saint and model. His correspondence and several of his Catholic sermons enable us to perceive certain parallels between the two men. More importantly, his correspondence, and even more so his chapter addresses to his fellow-Oratorians given over a period of thirty years between 1848 and 1878, enable us to trace the development of his thinking concerning the Oratory, to delineate the chief characteristics of his ‘idea’ of the Oratory, and to follow the numerous vicissitudes in the life of his own community in Birmingham.
Keith Beaumont is a priest of the French Oratory and honorary president of the French Association of the Friends of Newman.
