DOROTHY L. SAYERS, “THE SIX OTHER DEADLY SINS”

Dorothy Leigh Sayers (1893-1957) was a scholar, master of languages, author of popular detective stories, essayist, playwright, theologian, and friend of C. S. Lewis and other Inklings of Oxford. Many people enjoy her work because of her intellectual rigour, her humour, and her relevance on a wide range of contemporary topics. In this discussion, we will consider whether Sayers’ views on sin are relevant to our understanding of modern values such as consumerism, human progress, self-sufficiency, and personal success.
