Dr. Deborah A. Higgens is the Director of the C.S. Lewis Study Centre at “The Kilns,” former beloved home of C.S. Lewis, located in Oxford, England. Higgens earned a Ph.D. in medieval and Renaissance literature, an MA in Rhetoric and Composition, and a BA in English Education. She has been a professor of medieval and Renaissance literature. Higgens is passionate about the literature and culture of the Old English poets and archeological sites such as Sutton Hoo with its majestic Anglo-Saxon artifacts. She even enjoys the medieval sport of falconry.

“My passion found itself in books of history, poetry, and of all places, in Rohan. J.R.R. Tolkien, as professor of Anglo-Saxon, not only felt what I felt, but explained it in his articles and wove it into his own fairy story. It is my wish to take you along with me on my journey into a fascinating culture of Anglo-Saxon warriors, ladies, landscape, and mead halls and their reinvention in Théoden, Éowyn, Galadriel, Lothlórien, Meduseld, and Rohan. May the journey stir your souls as it has mine.” ~ Dr. Deborah A. Higgens
