The influence of Coleridge on Newman has often been cited, but it has also been disputed. Newman himself sometimes denied it or simply expressed his surprise at the 'coincidences'. In this article I focus on different aspects of Newman's thought where such influence is apparent: the idea of a 'sacramental system', the Church of England as a via media, the theory of development in dogma, and the self. Newman's mixed feelings about Coleridge are also analysed and an explanation for these is provided.
