Abstract

In May 2013 the Centre for Heritage Imaging and Collection Care (CHICC), John Rylands Library, the University of Manchester, announced the commenced of a three-year project to digitise approximately 250,000 archival documents related to the Blessed John Henry Newman (1801-1890). Why undertake this mammoth project? Newman stands as a Victorian giant in the fields of theology, philosophy and education. Although he died over a century ago his influence today is still felt by many academic and spiritual disciplines. His writings and his lifelong search for religious truth continue to inspire scholars throughout the world. In acknowledgement of his lasting legacy in September 2010 Newman was beatified by Pope Benedict XVI (Pope Emeritus since February 2013).
