A look at religious attitudes in the novel as exemplified by several of the characters.

” Throughout Charlotte Bronte’s Jane Eyre characters embody different attitudes and beliefs within the Christian faith. These different approaches to religion are shown in Mr. Brocklehurst, the unsympathetic hypocrite in Jane’s early life, then countered by Helen Burns’ gentle approach to her loving Father, lastly, Jane’s faith is tested by St. John’s zealous ambition to serve the Lord in her later life.”
