On December 17, 1957, Dorothy Sayers died. Best known for her Lord Peter Wimsey detective stories, after a tempestuous early life, she became a devout Anglo-Catholic, and was at least sufficiently pro-Roman to translate Dante. While working at Blackwells Books in Oxford, she became close to C.S. Lewis and Chrles Williams (hence her nickname), and wrote some splendid apologetics of her own – of which “Creed or Chaos?” might be most relevant to-day. Miss Sayers was a leading light of the St. Anne Society, which brought together some of the leading Anglo-Catholic writers of her time. There is to-day a Dorothy L. Sayers Society headquartered in the United Kingdom, dedicated to propagating knowledge of her life and work. She is definitely a key part of the literary aspect of the Patrimony.
