[St. Pachomius Library]

Katherine Kurtz

XX/XXI Centuries
Extremely successful author of mass-market science-fiction and fantasy novels, nearly all of which relate in some way or other to pre-Reformation Christianity. Ms. Kurtz considers herself Orthodox, and is the married abbess of a (doubtfully canonical) Celtic Rite group in Ireland. While her theology seems to me unduly influenced by Rudolf Steiner's, she unabashedly advocates Christianity in circles where neo-paganism and hostility to the Church are widespread, and her books have apparently been the starting point of a journey toward Christ for a number of her readers.
