Lauren Babb English 2123: Dracula Short Response July 17th, 2011 In this paper, I will present my reflections on Bram Stoker’s novel, Dracula and focus on the importance of religious issues that appear all throughout the text. Before reading Dracula I never would have thought religion to play such an important role in the storyline. Sure I knew crosses, Eucharist wafers, and rosaries would show up in the plot but did not realize the importance of the religion factor until I finished the novel. Anti- Semitism, the recurring use of the number three, and the description of Dracula’s physical appearances are just a few themes of religion I found to be important. When I first began reading the footnote on page 60, about “three being a significant number to vampires, as it is in fairy tales and Christian iconography” fascinated me and for the rest of the novel I was constantly looking for passages with number three references.
