Talk with Dr Peter Webster on the topic of Iris and the Christians: What did the British Churches make of Iris Murdoch, 1954-1983

Iris Murdoch is rightly regarded as a religious novelist, of a certain kind. But what about the other side of the relationship: what did Christian readers in England make of her? This lecture examines Christian reactions to Murdoch, as both philosopher and novelist.
