G. K. Chesterton credited The Princes and the Goblin with opening his eyes to a sacramental way of looking at the world that his conversion to Roman Catholicism only “crowed and confirmed.” In this lecture I endeavor to show how that vision unfolds in MacDonald’s story and what it tells us about the spiritual maturation of the story’s principal protagonist, the princess Irene.
