ABSTRACT
The article discusses the themes of communal worship and the cultural importance of churches in works by British author Henry James. The theme of spiritual connection is evident in his novel "The Golden Bowl." The article compares James' works to that of Nathaniel Hawthorne, where Hawthorne's writings contain similar themes of upholding social conventions in the face of evil. It also comments on James' visit to the United States in 1904, where he wrote about the visible absence of churches.
