Much is known about C. S. Lewis’ efforts to defend and propagate the Christian faith. However, less is known about his colleagues of fellow believers, such as J.R.R. Tolkien, and their contributions to his writings. They are known as the Inklings. Lewis and the “other” Inklings grasped how profoundly the genres and metaphors employed in expressing their worldviews determined its reception. Discussions and presentations will center on Lewis’ friendships and literary camaraderie among Charles Williams, Owen Barfield and, of course, Tolkien. This will provide compelling overviews of their individual achievements and thematic concerns, and the role their interactions played in shaping the faith and publications of their fellow Inklings.
Presenter: Thomas Pear, Hodges University digital communications and media professor
