Conversion to Catholicism, pursuit, Catholic dogma, sacrifice, religious feeling, human act


The paper deals with the reception of Graham Greene as a “Catholic writer“ in the 20th century literary criticism in Serbia. The paper concentrates on Greene’s themes and motives which Serbian critics discussed: the motive of persecution, criminals being persecuted by the police, victims by their tormentors, human souls being persecuted by God, who is seen both as the persecutor from whom there is no escape and the Saviour who redeems people from sin. Some critics believed that the more dominant the Catholic teachings in his novels are, the less plausible his characters become. So, it is claimed that, to some extent, Greene sacrificed God to the plausibility and credibility of his characters.
