Re: [mythsoc] Re: Tolkien and Catholicism (was Plagiarism)
- Bill - Yes, same guy. _Lord of the Elves and Eldils_ (rather hard to find
today) was a pioneering, and quite insightful especially for the time,
study of theology and philosophy in Tolkien and Lewis. Purtill has also
written another book on Tolkien (_J.R.R. Tolkien: Myth, Morality, and
Religion_), which has good parts but is weak on religion, and a defense of
Lewis's apologetics which I thought pretty bad.
