The Guardian was a weekly Anglican newspaper published from 1846 to 1951. It was founded by Richard William Church, Thomas Henry Haddan, and other supporters of the Tractarian movement and was for many years the leading newspaper of the Church of England. C. S. Lewis published his Screwtape Letters in serial form in The Guardian as well as The Great Divorce, the former in the early 1940s and the latter in 1944 and 1945. He also used The Guardian for some of his essays, including "Miracles" (October 1942), "Dogma and the Universe" and "Dogma and Science", both in March 1943.

It should not be confused with the present British newspaper called The Guardian, which was the Manchester Guardian until 1959.
