C. S. Lewis and Charles Williams were (perhaps in different degrees) sensitive to the beauty of the natural world, though what mattered to them was not merely the external aesthetic appearance of nature. Rather, what mattered was that the world of nature has sacramental value: Nature mediates between humans and God; the world is a sacrament of the divine presence. This chapter compares and contrasts the two writers’ visions of the sacramentality of nature and of human existence.
