C.S Lewis was a remarkable man of diversified talents: an author of science fiction and fantasy, a scholar of medieval literature and a profound Christian thinker. The wide range of his fictional, critical and theological literature provides a rich basis for an interdisciplinary study. I propose such a study, focusing on his concept of myth in selected theological, fictional and critical pieces. My goal is to exemplify and investigate the fundamental interdisciplinary nature of his theological and literary theories of myth, and to determine how strongly these formal theories influenced his fiction.
