The trinity in C S Lewis The chronicles of Narnia
2003 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this essay is to examine how the lion Aslan in C.S. Lewis’s The Chronicles of Narnia functions as all three parts of the Trinity. By comparing the books in the series about Narnia to the Bible, one can find many similarities between Aslan and God the Father, Jesus the Son and the Holy Spirit. First of all Aslan creates Narnia in the same way that God created the Earth. Secondly, Aslan gives his life for a traitor and then comes to life again just as Jesus did. The children in the books also fill the same functions for Aslan as the disciples and apostles did for Jesus. Thirdly, Aslan always comes back to Narnia to give help and assistance when needed and by doing so he functions as the Holy Spirit who is also called the Helper. Finally, in the last days of Narnia Aslan plays the same role as the Bible says that Jesus will do when our world comes to its end. Thus, Aslan clearly functions as the three parts of the Trinity.
