Catherine Fox, Judith Maltby, Sara Pearson and Alison Shell discuss the lives and works of Anglican women novelists.
Sara Pearson speaks about Charlotte Brontë, the daughter of a clergyman. “She wasn’t Anglican merely by birth or default: in her adulthood, she had a deep and abiding love for the Church.”
Judith Maltby considers the Anglicanism of Rose Macaulay, author The Towers of Trebizond, “the greatest Anglican novel of the 20th century: it should be to Anglicans what Graham Greene’s Power and the Glory is to Catholics.”
Recorded at the Church Times Festival of Faith and Literature, 21-22 February 2020.
