Event description: 

A “Wimsey-cal” Detection of the Background and Context of the Text 

Bryan Spinks, the Bishop F. Percy Goddard Professor of Liturgical Studies and Pastoral Theology, Yale University

The Aidan Kavanagh Lecture

Best known for her detective novels and religious plays, Dorothy L. Sayers was a “daughter of the vicarage.” The lecture explores the evidence in her letters and novels for her personal liturgical background and an immediate bibliographical source for her little-known 1942 lecture on Anglican Worship.
