In "Flannery O'Connor and Religious Epistemology" Dr. Jason Baehr, of the Loyola Marymount University Department of Philosophy, argues that O'Connor's fiction contains an account of the mechanics of religious knowledge, and uses three of O’Connor’s stories to formulate a model of religious knowledge, concluding that moral humility can function as an epistemic virtue in relation to theistic knowledge.

A request from a visitor looking for audio of O'Connor reading her own work led me to The Morning Oil, where I found WMA files of O'Connor reading "A Good Man is Hard to Find" and one of her lectures on aspects of the grotesque in Southern fiction.
