End of 'academic embargo' on G.K. Chesterton?

Chesterton is so much a genius and contrarian that academia for long has hesitated even to touch him.

Even if the people of England has not spoken yet, others are raising their voice.
Despite having a profound influence on the 20th century, English author G.K. Chesterton has remained virtually unknown to modern readers. This discrepancy may be due to an unwillingness for universities and colleges to include him in literary and history curriculum.
And other others.

In short, you should ask "Who is this guy and why haven’t I heard of him?"

Whatever Chesterton may or may not have said or written, along with all of the now very much favored Christian apologists and philosophers such as
CS Lewis, everything they had to say was written within the limited essentially godless parameters (or paradigm) which are criticized in this set of essays.
