I'd like for us to continue our discussion about religion and spirituality. In Persepolis, we see Marjane's strong faith in her God at the beginning. Then, with the advent of the Islamic revolution, her belief is shaken. How can this apply to us?
In order to receive credit, your assignment must include:
- Is your family religious? Were you raised to believe in a specific religion? If so, which?
- Are you religious now? Why/why not?
- By examining your answers to the previous questions, and evaluating them in conjunction with Marjane's character, how do external conflicts influence internal ones (i.e., how can things that happen around you cause you to doubt yourself and your beliefs)?
