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 its members, controlling many aspects of their daily lives.

in a short paragraph, contrast the influence of religion and superstition in the lives of the people of Raveloe with its influence in the lives of the people of Lantern Yard
