Interesting article from Protestantism, er, Christianity Today
C.S. Lewis was more Catholic than his Evangelical Protestant fans:

He believed in Purgatory.
• He went to an Anglo-Catholic parish in Oxford (of which there once were many) not because he was a party man but because it was his geographical parish.
• Starting around 1939 he went to Confession.

But the article’s point is he was also more Protestant than his RC neocon fans might think. I agree it was because he was a Protestant from Northern Ireland, something that stayed with him. The high end of Central Churchmanship was his spiritual home.
