Brocard Sewell was a notable and often divisive British Carmelite friar and literary figure. As a younger man he was involved in printing for the Catholic arts and crafts Guild of St Joseph and St Dominic, through which he befriended the likes of Hilary Pepler and the controversial artisan Eric Gill. Often a surprisingly tolerant man, he was nevertheless a member of the Distributist League and the British Union of Fascists, through which he became closely acquainted with Oswald Mosley.
