Reading the letter, there is no official canonization process going on:

Until the Church decides to open a cause in respect of J.R.R. Tolkien I would feel hesitant about personally approving a prayer in support of his canonization, especially for an international group. At the same time, I am pleased to encourage you in seeking to inform people more widely about J.R.R. Tolkien’s Catholic faith and the influence that this had on his writing and on his life.

While poking around a bit (thanks for the news sharing!), I ran across this book from Bodleian, and I am thinking if it is worth purchasing. Anyone here have it? Does it have Tolkien's maps reproduced in it?

Treasures from the Map Room
£35.00
Product Code: BK2777
A Journey Through the Bodleian Collections
Edited by Debbie Hall
April 2016
ISBN: 9781851242504
"This book explores the stories behind seventy-five extraordinary maps. It includes unique treasures such as the fourteenth-century Gough Map of Great Britain, exquisite portolan charts made in the fifteenth century, the Selden Map of China – the earliest example of Chinese merchant cartography – and an early world map from the medieval Islamic Book of Curiosities, together with more recent examples of fictional places drawn in the twentieth century, such as C.S. Lewis’s own map of Narnia and J.R.R. Tolkien’s map of Middle Earth." [sic]

I would hazard a guess that their payment system agreement has tightened controls over storing customer payment information. They are not supposed to charge your credit card until the items ships, so they have to have all of your payment info stored in a database until the item is available. With all the security hacks going on all over the Internet, that's a rich target!


Do you know for certain that they charged you when the order was placed? That's a different problem, then, and not legal.

Good catch! Directory permission issue. Should be working now, thanks for letting me know.
