I’m delighted to report the publication of the latest Miscellany from the Church of England Record Society, which includes my own edition of and introduction to the correspondence relating to Temple’s offer of a Lambeth D.D. to Sayers, which she refused. It’s a most interesting episode, which reveals much about the position of the ‘Christan writer’ in England, and the relationship between the Church of England and the arts.
