Abstract [en]

To use fiction as educational material in school is proven to be effective and a good strategy to help students to understand and discuss other perspectives in difficult questions (Löfstedt, 2011).

The aim with this essay is to evaluate Saracenens radicalization and the religious influence in Jag är pilgrimen written by Terry Hayes (2016). This was done through James Wallers (2007) theory of radicalization where three aspects of impact where analyzed (Waller, 2007).

With a qualitative content analysis on chosen part of Hayes book (2016) three questions were answered.

-          How can Saracenens radicalization be described thru James Wallers (2007) radicalization process and what role dose religion play in this process?

-          Can we call Saracenens planning against USA as terrorism or religious terrorism?

-          How can chose parts of Hayes book (2016) be used in education for Religion 2 in Swedish gymnasium to meet following core content in syllabus:

  • Religions and outlooks on life of importance for people's identity, affiliation, community and view of gender equality (Skolverket, 2017)?

The conclusion from the analysis is that Saracenens radicalization is comparable with Wallers theory and that it is also possible to call Saracenens planning religious terrorism (Jones, 2008). As for the third question, the conclusion is that the material meets the core content well and can be used as a ground for discussion in classroom about radicalization and how religion affects individual’s life.
