22 Oct G K Chesterton
Gilbert Keith Chesterton (29-May-1874 to 14-Jun-1936) was an English writer, philosopher, lay theologian, and literary and art critic. He has been referred to as the “prince of paradox”.
Chesterton created the fictional priest-detective Father Brown, and wrote on apologetics. Even some of those who disagree with him have recognised the wide appeal of such works as Orthodoxy and The Everlasting Man. Chesterton routinely referred to himself as an “orthodox” Christian, and came to identify this position more and more with Catholicism, eventually converting to Catholicism from High Church Anglicanism.
