The Oratory Of St. Philip Neri

Toronto Ontario Canada


John Henry Cardinal Newman (1801-1890) is the best-known Oratorian in the English speaking world.  Shortly after his conversion to Catholicism in 1845, he founded the Birmingham Oratory, and then sent Father Faber to London to found an Oratory there.  The amount of scholarship on Newman is truly staggering (as is his own list of publications). The following links provide an introduction into this field.  John Henry Newman was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI on 19 September 2010 in Birmingham, England.
