Rowan Williams on Tolstoy

by Daniel Hartley

Despite what you may think, this is not a broadcast on the art of pogonotrophy (yes, I did steal that word from David Bentley Hart). It is a fifteen-minute long radio ‘essay’ on Tolstoy’s literary art and its relations to his religious conversion. Rowan also has interesting things to say about the relative differences between the Tolstoyan and the Dostoevskian God.
