There are approximately 20,000 extant letters written by Blessed John Henry Newman. These have been gathered together in 32 volumes by the long and painstaking work of members of the Birmingham Oratory. Mgr Strange, theologian and Newman scholar, has recently published a book entitled ‘J H Newman – A Portrait in Letters’ through Oxford University Press. In this engaging and informative talk, he speaks of the demanding but richly rewarding work involved in this endeavour and he gives us some fascinating insights into the life and writings of the famous convert and Cardinal of the 19th century.
