The G.K. Chesterton Institute for Faith & Culture at Seton Hall University announces the publication of -volume 47, nos. 1 & 2, Spring Summer 2021 issue of its widely recognized journal The Chesterton Review.
“Chesterton’s versatility would have enabled him to adapt. What was G.K.’s Weekly, after all, if not an early version of a podcast? Like the modern blogger with things to say but unwilling or unable to say them on platforms other than his own, Chesterton detached himself from the “mainstream media” and spoke directly to a community he had himself helped to create. If he seemed an old-fashioned figure in the 1920s, more Victorian and Edwardian than Georgian, he could still cock a snook at monopolies, trusts, the long-established gatekeepers of acceptable opinion. He would certainly have found a way, as have his admirers today, of navigating the large and turbulent waters of the internet. If not, he would have disappeared without trace. This issue of the Review hopes to mimic some of that Chestertonian versatility by gathering a set of articles that pay tribute both to his range of interests and to the variety of forms in which he explored them. ” – Dermot Quinn, Editor, The Chesterton Review
