The purpose of Newman Reader (NR) is to make the written works of Cardinal Newman available in as complete and accessible a manner as resources allow. To this end, the site provides three types of content:
NR now provides the complete uniform edition of books published by Newman, plus miscellaneous shorter works.
The electronic copies provided here have been produced from the uniform edition edited by Cardinal Newman in his later years and reprinted by Longmans, Green around 1900-1910 (see the individual volumes for dates of printing). This collection is available in Pittsburgh, PA, at The National Institute of Newman Studies, and in the Washington, DC, area at several locations; viz. Mullen Library at Catholic University of America and the Library of Congress in Washington, and Reinsch Library at Marymount University in Arlington, VA.
Newman's works are presented as printed by Longmans, Green with the following minor editorial modifications:
The following dedication was composed by Dr. Bob Elder, the creator of Newman Reader. In 2003, Dr. Elder entrusted the care of Newman Reader to The National Institute for Newman Studies. NINS is grateful for this extraordinary gift to the Newman cause, and we deeply appreciate Dr. Elder's vision and dedication. It is an honor to be entrusted with the stewardship of such an important resource for Newman Studies.
This site is dedicated to
my wife, Cory,
For contributing several Newman works (including those most difficult to convert to electronic form), for transliterating Greek and Hebrew passages, and for providing continuing help and encouragement, I especially thank
Dave Armstrong introduced Paul to Newman Reader. I also thank Dan Meardon of Cary, NC, for his work on Volume 2 of Athanasius; Pablo Rodriguez for editorial help; and Brian Cardell and Katherine Abramovitz of Rare Books and Special Collections at Catholic University of America for their assistance. Questions and suggestions from several readers have helped to improve the content of the site.
Thanks to you all!
