This thesis analyses the role of religion in the Brontë novels, deals with the question of salvation and focuses on the Christian-based values, moral judgements and ethical questions as present in the texts: The Tenant of Wildfell Hall, Agnes Grey, Villette, Jane Eyre and Wuthering Heights. The aim of this thesis is to show that the sisters being themselves Christians dealt with religious questions consciously. The sisters created various characters and Chapter One analyses religious characters through the mirror of religion. Chapter Two deals with the question of salvation and afterlife, and Chapter Three focuses on Jane’s spiritual Bildungsroman.
