    As Shelley had observed, no religion or nation can surpass each other without borrowing certain ideas from the other. This notion thus serves as the underlying principle of Shelley's own interpretation of imagery, biblical phraseology, and symbols. Shelley's ‘The Assassins’ attempts to describe a facet of Christianity that leaves out certain supernaturalist dogmas.   Say a book has a main character who has multiple wives. Religions who believe in monogamy would see this as immoral and wrong, where as religions who believe in polygamy would see it in an entirely different light. Writers are conscious of how religion may shape a viewers outlook on a book.
