The World of the Rings: Language, Religion, and Adventure in Tolkien
by Jared Lobdell
- a detailed exploration of The Lord of the Rings, which
examines Tolkien's methods and worldview by following the
thread of three influences: the science of philology, Roman
Catholic theology, and the Edwardian adventure story. The
author explores the Christian/Catholic underpinnings of
the Rings series, with emphasis on the question of whether
the books are set before the Fall of Man.
