In "From Elfland to Hogwarts, or the Aesthetic trouble with Harry Potter," Pennington argues that "there seems to be nothing particularly original about Rowling's borrowings" (82). Nonetheless, in the article, he borrows quotes from ten different scholars - in addition to numerous references to books, TV series and movies.

Many of the defining features of Baroque art can be traced back to the influence of the Catholic Church, specifically the members of the Jesuits.
