Abstract and Keywords
Newman continues to influence Christian historiography in theological discourse, but his legacy is confusing because his writings promote three conflicting metanarratives of the Christian past. In order to appreciate his influence as an ‘authoritative voice’ in appropriating the Christian past, it is crucial to understand what these metanarratives are, how Newman used them in his role as a controversialist as an Anglican and later as a Roman Catholic, and the diverse ways in which Newman’s example is invoked in twenty-first-century theological discourse to promote incompatible appeals to Christianity’s historical legacy.
Kenneth L. Parker is Ryan Endowed Chair for Newman Studies and Professor of Historical Theology at Duquesne University.
