Christian Elements

For most of his life, C.S. was Christian. Perhaps that is why Narnia has several Christian elements. Some of them include:

  •        Aslan rose from the dead, like Jesus. Even so, in Narnia He rose from the dead only one day after his death, not three.
  •         Each book is a part of Catholicism;
         o    The Magician's Nephew is about the Creation and how evil came into Narnia.
o    The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe is the Crucifixion and Resurrection.
o    Prince Caspian is the new beginning of the true religion after corruption.
o    The Horse and His Boy is the  conversion of a heathen.
o    The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is the spiritual life
o    The Silver Chair is the war between good and evil
o    The Last Battle is the coming of the Antichrist and the Last Judgement.
