He was a member of the Anglican religious community the Society of the Sacred Mission at Kelham, Nottinghamshire from 1929 to 1973. He then joined the Roman Catholic College at Oscott.
He was known as a historian of Byzantium and was in some ways a follower of Christopher Dawson.
He encountered TS Eliot at Kelham and introduced him to the history of Little Gidding, later to be the title for one of Eliot's Four Quartets, through his draft verse play Stalemate at Little Gidding. On the occasion, in 1948, of Eliot's entry into the realm of sexagenarianism, Every wrote for a dedicatory compendium a piece on the poet's religious leanings and the broader significance thereof.
Every also corresponded with C. S. Lewis and Yves Congar, and wrote on the work of Charles Williams.
