Title: The art of transgressing religion through the guise of vampirism.
Authors: Lim, Lesli Sheue Huah.

Issue Date: 2009
Abstract: This paper will focus much attention on religion and its deviances in Carmilla by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu and Dracula by Bram Stoker, through the filter of the uncanny. The fundamental uncanny textual natures of both Dracula and Carmilla allow the writers a chance at undermining Christianity through the elucidation of vampirism as a pseudo-religion with its accompanying religious transgressions. I have explored the religious transgressions in Carmilla through the lens of the historical religious debate between Protestantism and Catholicism. In Dracula, however, Bram Stoker focuses on only Catholicism and through it, explores the possible fallacies the Catholic religion may have through the titular vampire, Count Dracula of Transylvania.
