Trying to remember a quotation

Postby Maolsheachlann » 21 Aug 2010, 11:35

Dear Lewis fans

I wonder if you might help me with a question? I'm looking for a particular Lewis quote, but I can't find it. I think it's from one of his essays. Basically, the gist of the quotation is that civilization is (or has been seen as) more to do with the judge's wig than the authority of the judge; that generations of the past might have seen the flower of civlization in pageantry and ceremony rather than in more utilitarian institutions. It's very relevant to something I'm writing now but I can't remember where I encountered it! And Google has failed me...

Thanks for reading!
