"Dorothy L. Sayers and the Wages of Cinema" - Crystal Downing

Biographers have long assessed Sayers’s concern with the wages of sin. None, however, discuss how wages from cinema shaped her response to sin. This lecture, based on archival research at the Marion E. Wade Center in Wheaton, Illinois, offers a whole new way to think about the montage of Sayers’s life. Employing images from the history of both Sayers and cinema, it demonstrates how moving images moved Sayers, transforming her from detective fiction author to one of the most important influences on the spiritual life of C. S. Lewis.
