      The Inklings: A Discussion of the Literary and Theological Perspectives
      of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, and Owen Barfield

      Mondays, October 15, 22, 29, November 5, 12
      The Church of Saint Luke in the Fields
      487 Hudson Street
      Greenwich Village, New York City
      7-8:30pm Laughlin Hall

      C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, Charles Williams, and Owen Barfield formed the
      nucleus of an informal literary society that flourished at the University
      of Oxford during the 1930s and ‘40s. Because of their shared interest in
      the weaving of Christian themes into works of fiction and poetry
      (particularly that with an emphasis on fantasy and myth), the Inklingsâ€"and
      their literary creationsâ€"were widely considered part of a magical world
      that continues to influence contemporary readers. The achievements of
      these four Inklings, as well as the work of some of their contemporaries,
      will be discussed.
