Hannah AgmataNovember 14, 2016Study Questions: “Nathan the Wise”1.Nathan came home from a trip and learned from Daya that his adopted daughter, Rechawas rescued by a Templar from a fire in their home. Daya told Nathan that Recha wastraumatized, and her imagination still paints fire in everything it shows her. Recha was still young and not her own person yet. Therefore, when the Templar savedher, she saw him as her guardian angel. Nathan wanted to get back her daughter’ssecurity by helping her to stop seeing fire everywhere. This means that he wanted tohelp Recha to become her ownself. In scene 2, Recha mentioned, “My angel, I saw his white wings…”. Recha was saying thatthe person who saved her was not human, instead it was an angel. Nathan explained toher that what she saw on the Templar as angelic, the Templar also saw it on her. Headded that a human being should not be less angelic, and the goodness of the deed iswhat makes a person angelic, not a physical thing (for example, wings). He was sayingthat the Templar who saved her was a human being who is vulnerable and not perfect,and therefore more worthy of praise. He explained to her that being smitten is a form oflaziness to recognition good deeds, and only lazy people worship to avoid doing good.
