The Wisdom of Father Brown. By G. K. Chesterton. A Parish Priest. Murder and Mystery. Father Brown is a fictional character created by English novelist G. K. Chesterton. Chesterton based the character on Father John O'Connor (1870–:1952), a parish priest in Bradford who was involved in Chesterton's conversion to Catholicism in 1922.. Father Brown is a short, stumpy Roman Catholic priest, 'formerly of Cobhole in Essex, and now working in London', with shapeless clothes and a large umbrella, and an uncanny insight into human evil. He makes his first appearance in the story The Blue Cross and continues through the five volumes of short stories, often assisted by the reformed criminal M. Hercule Flambeau. Father Brown also appears in a story 'The Donnington Affair' that has a curious history. In the October 1914 issue of the obscure magazine The Premier, Sir Max Pemberton published the first part of the story, inviting a number of detective story writers, including Chesterton, to use their talents to solve the mystery of the murder described. Chesterton and Father Brown's solution followed in the November issue. The story was first reprinted in the Chesterton Review (Winter 1981, pp. 1–:35) and in the book Thirteen Detectives.
