Stories

This section is dedicated to stories and books which, just like Harry Potter contain spiritual symbolism. Here you can find articles, links and book reviews which discuss this symbolism for the sake of comparison to Harry Potter.

Stories we have in mind include Lord of the Rings, The Matrix, the legends of the Holy Grail and King Arthur, The Divine Comedy, Don Quixote, the Greek legends, Grimm's fairy tales, sacred scriptures from all the world religions, and any other writings which fit into this category.
