Essay: In a short paragraph,contrast the influence of religion and supersition in the lives of people of Raveloe with its influence in the lives of people of Lantern Yard.
In Raveloe, superstition caused a fear of strangers, and the viewing of herbal cures as magic, while religion was not a real influence in daily life. Church attendance was irregular and tended more toward social events.

In Lantern Yard, superstition was involved in religion itself; the people believed in visions and in casting lots. The church strongly influenced the lives of it’s members, controlling man aspects of their daily lives.
