Contents of Letters, Board of Trustees

Posted by Joel Heck on Friday, November 2, 2012,
With this update, I have decided to move to an improved format wherein I briefly mention the key topics in the various letters Lewis wrote on any given date. This is a huge project, one that will probably take years to complete, but it should result in a more useful database of material. Since PDF files are searchable, it may also help researchers a bit more.

On another note, I have recently learned, while on sabbatical in Cambridge, England, that C. S. Lewis served on the Board of Trustees of...

A Severe Mercy

Posted by Joel Heck on Wednesday, October 10, 2012,
I just finished rereading Sheldon Vanauken's masterpiece, A Severe Mercy, for the fourth time and adding notes from that reading. Surprisingly, I was able to add more than a thousand words to this chronology, especially by calculating the approximate dates when Vanauken wrote to Lewis. I also added the main subjects of the letters they wrote to each other, which, I think, needs eventually to be done for all letters in this document. It enables the chronology to make more sense, sound more hum...

Intellectual History

Posted by Joel Heck on Thursday, October 4, 2012,
After having worked through my intellectual history of Oxford and Cambridge during the Lewis years (available on this website), I have added about a thousand words and a lot more good information about C. S. Lewis. Surprisingly, Jack's lecture at Westcott House in Cambridge, "Modern Theology and Biblical Criticism," had not been mentioned in the chronology. Nor had his talk to Bedford College in London on "Shelley, Dryden,and Mr. Eliot." Lots of other items were added to a document now over 4...

Proofreading Done

Posted by Joel Heck on Tuesday, October 2, 2012,
I have now completed proofreading all 399 pages and more than 266,000 words of this 3.02 MB file. This helped me to see other events that should be added, including an additional schedule from Warren during 1966. The use of those schedules can help a person reconstruct in more detail the likely series of events of Jack or Warren. The document is now about 1,500 words longer and a bit more accurate. A couple of chronological mistakes were found and corrected. The number of footnotes now approa...

Proofreading and Updating

Posted by Joel Heck on Tuesday, September 25, 2012,
In a fairly major effort, I have proofread the first one hundred pages of this nearly 400-page document and made lots of small changes and a couple of corrections. I have also added the first ever photo, a picture of the building in Cambridge where Lewis lectured most of the time at 8 Mill Lane during his later Cambridge years. Lots of the changes are spelling corrections, punctuation corrections, changing past tenses to present tenses for consistency, and improvements in phrasing. However, t...

This is the latest Lewis chronology:

The file that appears below lists all works of C. S. Lewis in chronological order (now 472 in number, one more than the previous version because of the addition of the brief "Undergraduate Criticism" from 1960) in the location where they were first published or delivered (if spoken) as far as I am able to determine. Corrections are welcome. This version, slightly revised and added on March 18, 2017, includes works listed in the bibliography of Adam Barkman's C. S. Lewis & Philosophy as a Way of Life. It also includes the recently discovered (by Christopher Marsh) "A Christmas Sermon for Pagans."
