I believe in God, Man and the Empire: Religion and Gender in Rudyard Kipling’s Works
Halmstad University, School of Humanities (HUM).

Abstract [en]
In A Choice of Kipling’s Verse, T.S. Eliot states his view on what is supposed to be Kipling’s religious outlook: “. . . [H]is religious attitude . . . is an attitude of comprehensive tolerance. He is not an unbeliever – on the contrary, he can accept all faiths. . .” (24). Kipling may “accept all faiths,” but does that mean that he regards all faiths equally? That is a question I am going to answer in this essay. I will suggest that he attempts to unite all religions into a universal religion and claims that it is essentially about one and the same God. Thus, he tries to create a universal religion. However, does that mean that he really shows “an attitude of comprehensive tolerance” towards all religions? My thesis is that Kipling’s religion is at the core male trying to undermine female features.
