Abstract [sv]

Jag har länge haft ett intresse för islam i Iran. För att komma närmre och förstå detta ämne så har jag valt att analysera romanen Huset vid moskén från 2008 av Kader Abdolah, som utspelar sig i Iran under tiden för den islamiska revolutionen 1978-79. Jag kommer att titta på hur religionen fungerar för några av karaktärerna och hur de olika funktionerna förändras genom revolutionen. För att kunna analysera detta kommer jag att studera religionens olika funktioner samt Irans politiska och religiösa historia. I analysen resonerar jag kring tre karaktärer som representerar tre olika förhållningssätt till religion: inre andlighet, religion som vägen till acceptans och våldsamt religionsförtryck.

Abstract [en]

For a long time, I have had an interest in Islam in Iran. To be able to learn more and understand this subject, I will analyze the novel Het huis van der moskee (The House by the Mosque, my translation) by Kader Abdolah, which takes place in Iran during the time of the Islamic revolution of 1978-79. I will study the importance of religion to a few of the characters, and how this changes during the course of the revolution. To do this, I will begin by studying the varying functions of religion, as well as the religious and political history of Iran. In the analysis I will discuss three characters who represent three different approaches to religion: inner spirituality, religion as a way towards acceptance and violent religious oppression.
