505 0  Introduction -- Bombed churches -- Saints and miracles : 
       the end of the affair -- Muriel spark and evil -- 
       Rebuilding the church : Barbara Pym's parochialism -- 
520    During and after the Second World War, religion informed 
       British literature and culture. Leading writers 
       contributed to discussions about faith and spiritual life,
       inside and outside organized religion. Graham Greene, 
       Muriel Spark, and Barbara Pym incorporated miracles, evil,
       and church-going into their novels, while Louis MacNeice, 
       T.S. Eliot, and C.S. Lewis gave radio broadcasts about the
       role of Christianity in contemporary society. Certainly 
       the war revived interest in aspects of Christian life: 
       salvation and redemption were on many people's minds. The 
       Ministry of Information used images of bombed churches to 
       stoke patriotic feeling, and King George VI led a series 
       of Days of National Prayer that coincided with crucial 
       events in the Allied cause. After the war and throughout 
       the 1950s, approximately 1.4 million people converted to 
       Roman Catholicism as a way of expressing their spiritual 
       ambitions and solidarity with humanity on a world-wide 
       scale. Eminent intellectuals, such as Paul Tillich, Ronal 
       Niebuhr, Jacques Maritain, and Simone Weil, gave concerted
       thought to religion and statehood, often at the same time.
       The mid-century turn to religion offered ways to 
       articulate statehood, not from the usual perspective of 
       nationhood and politics, but from the perspective of moral
       action and improvement of the lot of humankind. Religion 
       provided one way for writers to answer the question, 'what
       is man?' It also afforded ways to think about social 
       obligation. Instead of being a retreat into seclusion and 
       solitude, the mid-century turn to religion is a call to
