Description
Where is God in Harry Potter? (50 minutes), Patricia Lyons - After the publication of Deathly Hallows, JK Rowling said in an interview, "To me [the religious parallels have] always been obvious...but I never wanted to talk too openly about it because I thought it might show people who just wanted the story where we were going." From The Sorcerer's Stone through The Deathly Hallows, J.K. Rowling focuses forcefully on the reality of human souls and how love and evil can heal or split them. In an interview with MTV, Rowling called Hogwarts a "multi-faith school" and in that spirit this workshop will engage the religious ideas in the books with a curious and open mind, and with the single goal of uncovering as many spiritual meanings as Rowling intended to hide under her cloak.
