The Commission to Revise the Psalter

Posted by Joel Heck on Saturday, July 21, 2018
There are a few significant additions to this chronology. I have included a February 13, 1957 letter to Willis Glover. I have added a lot more on Lewis’s involvement in the Commission to Revise the Psalter, including the meeting dates of all nineteen major meetings and whether or not Lewis was in attendance (and whether or not T. S. Eliot was present also). There are also notes on five letters, previously unpublished I think, related to Lewis' work with the Commission. In addition, I have passed a major milestone--more than 700,000 words. On pages, I hope to reach 1,300 pages some day in the not too distant future. Neither of those two milestones, once reached, is likely to be surpassed. But then again, who knows?

I have decided to include below almostall of the Spotlights that I have posted thus far, since they are often important, but little known, events in the life of C. S. Lewis. That file appears below, in case some readers have missed some of the previous postings. There are seven postings in that file, and I invite people to submit a candidate for the next posting.

The file that appears below lists all works of C. S. Lewis in chronological order (now 528 in number) 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 May 13, 2020, includes a corrected date for "Transposition" on June 9, 1946.
