Epiphany: Dorothy L Sayers’ ‘Kings in Judea’

The Adoration of the Magi by Filippiono Lippi

The Twelve Days of Christmas have passed. Today we celebrate Epiphany, the revelation of Christ to the nations in the persons of the magi from the East. A classic to read or listen to, then, is Dorothy L. Sayers’ ‘Kings in Judea’, the first play in her series of radio dramas on the life of Christ, The Man Born to Be King.

There is a (probably illegal) streaming version of the plays here.

Or, get your hands on a copy of the book and a few friends, then do a readers’ theatre in your living room. I’ve done it, and it’s good fun. Alternatively, you can read the play in the back room of the Eagle & Child. I’ve also done that.

Happy Epiphany!
