This discussion of the medieval influences on J.K. Rowling’s works illustrates the ways in which that colorful time period flavors her novels. Medieval manifestations are keys to understanding the messages that Rowling’s texts have for mature readers. Among her themes are methods for coping with our modern, technologically-obsessed world.

Professor Bryan Polk is a Senior Lecturer in Religious Studies and English at Penn State Abington.
