Опис: Francis William Newman (1805-1897), the younger brother of Cardinal Newman, was an English scholar and miscellaneous writer. In 1847 he published anonymously History of the Hebrew Monarchy, intended to introduce the results of German investigation in this department of Biblical criticism. In 1849 appeared The Soul: Her Sorrows and Aspirations, and in 1850, Phases of Faith; or, Passages from the History of My Creed, the former a tender but searching analysis of the relations of the spirit of man with the Creator; the latter a religious autobiography detailing the author's passage from Calvinism to pure theism. It is on these two books that Professor Newman's celebrity will principally rest, as in them his intense earnestness has kept him free from the eccentricity which marred most of his other writings, excepting his contributions to mathematical research and oriental philology. His miscellaneous essays, some of much value, were collected in several volumes before his death. His last publication, Contributions Chiefly to the Early History of Cardinal Newman (1891), was generally condemned as deficient in fraternal feeling. He was far from possessing his brother's subtlety of reasoning.
