Michael Ward is Senior Research Fellow at Blackfriars Hall, University of Oxford. He is the author of the award-winning Planet Narnia: The Seven Heavens in the Imagination of C.S. Lewis (Oxford University Press) and co-editor of The Cambridge Companion to C.S. Lewis (Cambridge University Press).

C.S. Lewis described the seven heavens of the medieval cosmos as, ‘spiritual symbols of permanent value’.  Michael Ward contends that these symbols provide the imaginative blueprint to the seven Chronicles of Narnia.
