The Latin Letters of C.S. Lewis
Latin Letters of C.S. Lewis by C. S. Lewis
Book DescriptionIn September 1947, after reading 'The Screwtape Letters' in Italian, Fr. Giovanni Calabria was moved to write to the author, but he knew no English, so he addressed his letter in Latin. Therein began a correspondance that was to outlive Fr. Calabria himself (he died in December 1954 and was succeeded in the correspondance by Fr. Luigi Pedrollo). Translator/editor Martin Moynihan calls these letters "limpid, fluent and deeply refreshing. There was a charm about them too, and not least in the way they were 'topped and tailed' - that is, in their ever-slightly-varied formalities of address and farewell." More than any other of his published works, 'The Latin Letters' shows the strong devotional side of Lewis, and contains letters ranging from Christian Unity and modern European History to liturgical worship and general ethical behaviour. Moreover, these letters are often intimate and personal.

Author Biography - C. S. Lewis
CLIVE STAPLES LEWIS (1898-1963) was one of the intellectual giants of the twentieth century and arguably one of the most influential writers of his day. He was a fellow and tutor in English Literature at Oxford University until 1954 when he was unanimously elected to the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance English at Cambridge University, a position he held until his retirement. He wrote more than thirty books, allowing him to reach a vast audience, and his works continue to attract thousands of new readers every year. His most distinguished and popular accomplishments include Mere Christianity, Out of the Silent Planet, The Great Divorce, The Screwtape Letters, and the universally acknowledged classics, the Chronicles of Narnia. To date, the Narnia books have sold over 100 million copies and been transformed into three major motion pictures.
