While reading the book Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott I have come to the conclusion that Scott criticizes the church a lot. By some of the quotes by various characters show that he has some type of grudge towards the church. In the following paragraphs I will give several examples of his criticism.
One example of the criticism of the church is when the Grand Master was talking at the trial. He said:

showed last 75 words of 489 total
Though in Ivanhoe there were many examples of criticism but it would take awhile to name all of them. It was obvious that Scott didn’t exactly like the church. The strange thing that I keep on thinking about is why he didn’t like the church. I think that there is probably a good reason but most people don’t even know about it. Still he made his point in the book.
