Gilbert Keith Chesterton (29 May 1874 – 14 June 1936) was an English writer and philosopher.
Chesterton came to identify himself more and more with Catholicism, eventually converting to it.
Less politically correct views included stated anti-Semitism and support for distributism, notably with his close friend Hilaire Belloc, this partnership sometimes referred to as "Chesterbelloc".
The nationalist A. K. Chesterton was his second cousin.
