Abstract: In this article, I investigate Newman’s understanding of doctrinal development, specifically regarding the accumulation of doctrines over time. Through an analysis of Newman’s essay on development and a letter written by him in 1868, we can better understand the potential "advantage," but not superiority, that comes from the ever-increasing resources of tradition. Newman’s view of development is directed towards the present and abiding concern to maintain fidelity to the deposit of faith, or to what he understands to be a "sacred philosophy."
