ESN Conversation: The Man Born to Be King with Kathryn Wehr


December 20, 2022 at 1 pm ET
From December 1941 until October 1942, the BBC broadcast a series of radio dramas written by Dorothy L. Sayers. In a new critical and annotated edition of “The Man Born to Be King,” scholar Kathryn Wehr brings fresh insights to the plays, their background, Sayers’s creative process, and the ongoing significance of the life of Christ today. Listen again, or for the first time, to the story of the man who was born to be—and still is—king. This conversation is co-sponsored by our great partners at Women Scholars and Professionals.
