Abstract: Straipsnyje remiantis literatūrologų Victoro Watsono, Margaret Meek ir kitų įžvalgomis, religinės tapatybės dinamikos aspektu tyrinėjami trys XXI a. pradžioje parašyti skandinavų literatūros kūriniai paaugliams: Peterio Høego Dramblių prižiūrėtojų vaikai, Lene’ės Kaaberbøl Šešėlių vartai ir Kristin Steinsdottir Spurgos ir karis. Visuose šiuose romanuose religinės tapatybės paieškos – svarbi bręstančio žmogaus ieškojimų kryptis, kūrinių siužetiniame plane užimanti gana reikšmingą vietą. Tyrimu siekiama parodyti, kaip kūriniuose atsiskleidžia veikėjų krikščioniškoji tapatybė, kaip ji kinta veikėjams bendraujant su kitų krikščioniškųjų konfesijų, su kitų religijų atstovais, paaugliais ir suaugusiaisiais
Referring to the insights of literature scientists Marija Nikolajeva, Margaret Meek and others, the author of the article investigates three works of Scandinavian literature for teenagers: Dramblių prižiūrėtojų vaikai by Peter Hoeg, Šešėlių vartai by Lene Kaaberbøl and Spurgos ir karis by Kristin Steinsdottir viewing them from the aspect of religious identity. The search for religious identity in all the novels is an important period of the maturity process of a young person and plays a significant role in the plot of each novel. The aim of the investigation is to show how the Christian identity of the characters reveals itself and changes while having contact with teenagers confessing other religions: Muslims, the Hindu and others. The investigation has shown that, what concerns the artistic reality of the works analysed, the realization of one‘s Christian identity is not something given a priori – the initial relationship with Christianity is complicated and, in many cases, full of conflicts. The dynamics of religious identity of the main character is especially clearly seen in the novel Spurgos ir karis: starting with full indifference towards the inborn religion, later acquiring ironic attitude to it, fascination with the Hindu and their religion, coming to the conclusion that Christianity is of no less importance and significance (it was important to the person the teenager Bjosis loved).; the characters of the novel „D. p. v.“ – three children whose parents are missing – have a chance to meet and know different people and thus gradually assimilate the world of each of them and get acquainted with religions they confess. Another topic the author of the novel looks into is the conflict between Protestantism and Catholicism. Tilte, a teenage girl, falls in love with a young Catholic, who later decides to give up the romantic relationship and follow his vocation to become a Catholic priest.[...]
