Lord Of The Rings Heniti Does The Ring In Lord Of The Rings Represent Sin?

Does the Ring in Lord of the Rings represent Sin? - lord of the rings heniti

Tolkien wrote The Lord of the Rings is of course a fundamentally religious and Catholic work, unconsciously at first, but consciously in the revision. "

I saw the Lord of the Rings help and today I could not seem to notice that the ring of power over people, which reflects the sin has power over people, especially the dependence of sin.

Has anyone noticed that you see Lord of the Rings "into, or is it the ring is something else for you?
What other Christian and Catholic themes in The Lord of the Rings trilogy?

    I would like to think of the One Ring as a metaphor for temptation, not even evil. The ring is tempted into evil, but ultimately the decision of the individual. As Galadriel said in the community, the use of these data on the first ring of justice and good, but "Oh, do not stop there. Power is attractive not misunderstand. The search for a damaged heart, even if the quest was for justice from the beginning.

    Yes, I'm a LotR nerd. : P

    While the LotR trilogy seems to Christian themes of good against evil, have had Gandalf from the dead, etc., Tolkien was known to dislike allegory, and was frustrated when trying to compare the Bible their books. He said that it undermines the creativity of his books, and differs from the story, he said.

    It is therefore unlikely that "suggestions" of the ring represented a sin, but it is likely that many interpret it that way.

  3. Its classic good against evil.

    Sweet naive hobbit only against the seemingly endless hordes of darkness remain true to his virtues, even if the temptation.


    Morgoth / Melkor essentially the story of Satan.

  5. It represents the power and the ability to corrupt.
    Note the elves and dwarves do not need it, but humans and hobbits are obsessed with her.
