The Dwelling-Place of Light is a 1917 best-selling novel by American writer Winston Churchill, the last of his twenty-year run of best-sellers.[1] Like The Inside of the Cup and A Far Country, the title has a biblical allusion: "Where is the way to the dwelling of light?"[2] Published in October 1917, it did not achieve as many sales as his prior novels.[3]

It was also adapted into a silent film in 1920, directed by Jack Conway and starring Claire Adams, Nigel De Brulier, and King Baggot.
