John Henry Newman (1801-1890) was an important figure in the religious history of England in the 19th century. Throughout his career as a theologian, deacon, priest and cardinal, John Henry Newman remained a committed believer in the value of education.

He argued that a university should foster the ‘diffusion and extension of knowledge’ rather than religious or moral training, and that it should prepare students for life in the world.
