Crynodeb

Locating Christian motifs has been a popular approach of literary criticism to the Harry Potter series in the past years. The vast majority of critics have come to the conclusion that the novels either feature only a few, unsystematic references to Christian ethics or none at all. However, the Harry Potter heptalogy does indeed carry a Christian message, even if this message remains to some extent concealed as a result of the novels’ secularized language, setting and characters. The series both follows the fashion of the psychomachia, a literary genre based on Christian morals, and uses central motifs of the psychomachia.
