El Candor Del Padre Brown

In spite of his literary accomplishments, he considered himself primarily a journalist. For example in one Father Brown story an Anglican priest murders the adulterous village blacksmith or similar by throwing a heavy object off the Church tower on to his head.

Well, I suppose that would be fatal, provided that the victim was walking close enough to the tower and the Priest had plenty of time to practise and if he could lug said heavy object up the bell tower without being noticed.

Father Chesterton padre brown is the Catholic priest who through the refined psychological experiences offered by confession and by the persistent activity of the fathers' moral casuistry, though not neglecting science and experimentation, but relying especially on deduction and introspection, totally defeats Sherlock Holmes, makes him look like a pretentious little boy, shows up his narrowness and pettiness.

Moreover, Chesterton is a great artist while Conan Doyle was a mediocre writer, even though he was knighted for literary merit; thus in Chesterton there is a stylistic gap between the content, the detective story plot, and the form, and therefore a subtle irony with regard to the subject chesterton padre brown dealt with, which renders these stories so delicious.
