“Heraldry of Heaven” – Free Lecture on C.S. Lewis and “Sehnsucht”

C. S. Lewis used the German term sehnsucht to describe an inconsolable yearning, an unsatisfied desire which is itself more desirable than any other satisfaction. Mythgard faculty member Sørina Higgins offered observations about Lewis and sehnsucht in a bonus lecture entitled “The Heraldry of Heaven: The Development of Sehnsucht in the Writings of C. S. Lewis” for the Tolkien-Lewis Mythgard Institute course. And in the true Mythgard tradition of continuously breaking new ground, this lecture is available free for viewing and/or listening.
