WASHINGTON, January 28, 2013 - Clive Staples Lewis was one of the 20th century’s most famous Christian apologists, authors, and teachers, whose writings continue to draw a diverse audience from children to university scholars and theologians.
U.S.-based organizations which study and preserve the Oxford and Cambridge don’s teachings and legacy are conducting events this year and next to observe the 50th anniversary of his 1963 death.
The C. S. Lewis Institute in McLean, VA is observing the anniversary with a July 6-14 teaching tour of Oxford and Cambridge led by Lewis experts and scholars. Lewis sites such as his home - The Kilns - and Holy Trinity Church where he worshipped, are included.
The C.S. Lewis Foundation in Redlands , CA () is presenting anniversary events in U.S. and U.K. locations this year and next, including summer symposia and lectures about his life, journey, and writings. The foundation owns The Kilns which it restored years ago, and operates it as a study centre for visiting resident scholars. The foundation also offers house tours by appointment.
Independent walking tours of Lewis sites in Oxford may be arranged. For tour narrative and information go Faith Travel Focus.
