Description

This session will explore the various ways C. S. Lewis received, re-transmitted, and adapted medieval literary versions of monsters and the monstrous. From the thin line separating beasts and monsters in medieval bestiaries, to the possible positive spiritual role of monstrous foes in saint's lives, these papers will consider Lewis's own works, especially his fiction, as an important part of his medievalist imagination.
