The Pope and Harry Potter

Last spring, over plates of sausages at a pub in Montreal, my older brother Tony and I outlined an essay about the relationship between fantasy literature and religious faith in America today. We began with a discussion of the Pope's comments on Harry Potter from a few years ago, and then backtracked to an obscure Scottish fantasy writer from a few hundred years ago, before moving forward again to more contemporary devils and vampires.

In early October the essay that we mapped out in Montreal was published in Notre Dame Magazine. We'd love to hear your comments on it, so please click on the title of this blog post, read the essay, and let us know what you think!
