Honorary Doctorate from the University of Dijon

Posted by Joel Heck on Friday, December 18, 2015,
One new detail that appears in the current version of "Chronologically Lewis" is the actual date on which C. S. Lewis received an honorary doctorate from the University of Dijon. Since I had only seen it listed as a degree given by that university in 1962, I wondered if the month and day could be determined, along with some other details. See encyclopedia.com for one example of the listing of the year, or the timeline from Dallas Baptist University (which incorrectly lists 1963 as the year, b...

Proofreading Done!

Posted by Joel Heck on Wednesday, November 18, 2015,
Today I completed the proofreading of all 982 pages of this chronology. Boring work, but helpful to the accuracy, completeness, and readability of the text. Time to celebrate!! Throughout I have searched online for various names and places, adding some informative details about such people and places, thereby connecting the narrative more closely with the lives of Warren and Jack Lewis. I have noticed during this proofreading the attribution of honorary degrees to C. S. Lewis in five differen...

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...

200 pages proofread

Posted by Joel Heck on Friday, September 28, 2012,
Most of the previous post applies to this post, which marks the finishing of the proofreading of the next one hundred pages, two hundred in total. This project is now halfway done on a document that has more than 226,000 words. For example, a double listing for the death of a Lewis family dog, Mr. Papworth, has been eliminated (not that this is all that important). Other minor corrections have occurred as well, some of them typographical, as the previous post indicates. This is very boring wo...

Another New Letter

Posted by Joel Heck on Tuesday, May 8, 2012,
Well, imagine this. Just four days after making some changes to this chronological database because of the "discovery" of two new letters, I get to make another change based on still another new letter. Dr. Robin Darwall-Smith, archivist at Magdalen and Univ., discovered a letter to the Master of Univ. upon the decision to elect Lewis as an Honorary Fellow. That letter of apppreciation was written on Friday, Feb. 13, 1959. That new information has been incorporated into this database for that...

Chronologically Lewis

Posted by Joel Heck on Monday, December 21, 2009,
A lot has been written about Lewis, but no one has catalogued all of the things that Lewis wrote and did, day by day, month by month, year by year. That has now been done. This required reading through all of the Collected Letters, Volumes I, II, and III, the diary of C. S. Lewis and that of Warren Lewis, and other books, documents, and resources. These have been compiled into this document entitled "Chronologically Lewis." Now students of Lewis, and scholars of Lewis, can see what Lewis was ...

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."
