Owen Barfield Glossary

The ‘Encyclopedia Barfieldiana’ was created in the mid-2000s (and not updated since) by Professor Lavery, who unexpectedly passed away in August 2016. The first three letters are reproduced below.

The full glossary, as left by Professor Lavery on his website David Lavery.net, is gratefully mirrored here, so that the resource isn’t lost.
