The Bible and traditional Christian narrative also influenced The Silmarillion . Tolkien was a devout Roman Catholic. The conflict between Melkor and Eru Ilúvatar parallels that between Satan and God. [95] Further, The Silmarillion tells of the creation and fall of the Elves, as Genesis tells of the creation and fall of Man. [96] As with all of Tolkien's works, The Silmarillion allows room for later Christian history, and one version of Tolkien's drafts even has Finrod , a character in The Silmarillion , speculating on the necessity of Eru's (God's) eventual Incarnation to save Mankind. [97] A specifically Christian influence is the notion of the Fall of man , which influenced the Ainulindalë , the Kinslaying at Alqualondë , and the fall of Númenor . [78]
