Orleanna, an ex-nature believer, rapidly picks up on this thought and seems, on her extensive hikes and later in her gardening, to adopt it as her own way of spirituality. By the end of the book both Adah and Leah seem to have adopt versions of pantheism as well, with Leah stating that her awareness of God is "some kin to the passion of Brother Fowles…who advised me to trust in creation" (525), and Adah declaring that, "God is everything then" (528). Given that cultural pride over others is presented as the most pronounced sin of the West, and old-fashioned ways of Christianity as one of this sin's main mediums, it is not surprising to find pantheism being presented as the spiritual antidote to traditional Christianity. It speaks against the stance of ‘subdue and conquer’ that Western philosophy applies to both the natural world and to the humans who inhabit it.

To Jonathan, he was stunned and confused, but accepted the gift thinking, “I did not know what to do, for, as an English Churchman, I have been taught to regard such things as in some measure idolatrous, and yet it seemed so ungracious to refuse an old lady meaning, so well and in such a state of mind” (Stoker, 8). After going through torments from the Count, Jonathan then found a comfort in the symbol that the old lady had placed around his neck thinking, “Bless that good, good woman who hung the crucifix round my neck! For it is a comfort and a strength to me whenever I touch it” (Stoker, p.41). Through his faith in the symbol and its meaning, he gained the power to take action in defeating
