Title: Freedom of conscience in John H. Newman and Miquel De Unamuno
Author: Fagan, Kevin Brendan
Abstract: Deals with the issue of freedom of conscience in two of its principal advocates in the modem English and Spanish -speaking worlds , John Henry Newman and Miguel de Unamuno . Seemingly strange bedfellows , in their respective linguistic communities Newman is considered an intellectual defender of institutional Christianity , while Unamuno is oft characterized as its greatest heretic . This dissertation is a comparative study of both writers fi^om a historical -critical perspective . Our aim is to suggest that the heroic defenses of conscience by both NewTnan and Unamuno towards the end of their lives are a logical corollary to a succession of actions and writings from their youth onwards in the affirmation of the principles of fi -ee examination and personal choice against censorship , control and coercion .
