Thirty silver pennies in a fundamentally religious and Catholic work

The third part of Ms. Seth's series: 'Angel and Demon, Gospel and Fairy-story' is now released.

It focuses on Christian symbolism she claims is present in the chapters including Bombadil as well as peripheral ones. What is emphasized is Tolkien's technique. One or two of the religious ideas she presents - I've seen over the years very briefly touched upon. In summarizing and high-lighting eight different examples one might conclude there's something to it all. The Judas Iscariot and 30 silver pieces analogy certainly seems hard to summarily dismiss.
