In Rudolfo Anaya’s portrayal of spiritual and mental growth in this novel Bless Me, Anaya shows a effective meaning as well as he gives a powerful challenge to Catholic religion and the Hispanic culture.

Cassell also shows that " Wigglesworth 's public works also encourage men and women to put away their personal pride and to submit themselves to the sovereignty of God"(1). In this poem, Wigglesworth sees
Through the juxtaposition of these entwined yet separate forms of logic can the breadth of religious fanaticism be seen. Hale, devout to his religion, is prideful of his abilities to distinguish the mundane from witchcraft, utilizing his religious texts and knowledge to do so; however, such devotion to his religion is misused by the people of Salem, for whenever there is a rumor or heresy that someone is involved in mystical happenings, he scrutinizes the suspect’s actions beyond the usual. Contrasting this to Proctor’s statement, it is paradoxical to the suspect since they will be guilty of the accused actions regardless of what they may do. Regardless, both Proctor and Hale utilize their logical knowledge to refute the other’s claims, thereby defining the general theme of religious fanaticism in a unique approach that supplies reason to both sides - for reason and logic, while synonymous, are not exactly the same in meaning or
Because once we accept Jesus in our lives as our Lord and Saviour we try and imitate Him. He is our friend and companion for life but when we sin, sin separates us from him. This does not mean that we do not qualify for eternal life but we do not want to live a life without Jesus by our side.

With quite the cast of characters, ranging from the Knight to the Cook and the Wife of Bath, all tied together by religious piety— a guise for some, true passion for others— Chaucer reveals the inner workings of each pilgrim. Added to the equation is Chaucer the narrator, different from Chaucer the poet, who inserts his own, not so objective, observations into his descriptions of his fellow travelers. What first appears as gentle chiding soon reveals deeper truths about the group members’ motivations. Chaucer includes the Prioress, including other religious figures, to highlight the discrepancies between what a devout Christian should be and how he or she truly acts. Chaucer began writing The Canterbury Tales with plans for each pilgrim, plus the Host, to tell two stories on the way to Canterbury Cathedral, the murder scene of Saint Thomas Becket.

HAMLET ESSAY Shakespeare uses a litany of different literary devices to convey his attitude about religion. Many times, he takes a critical position of it through characters such as Polonius and Claudius, two of the most villainous characters in the play.
