The allegory used in the Bunyan's work, we can find even in our realistical life in concerete, and it has taken such beings to be familiar with, and general to the human, as Way, Travel, Clothes, River, Gate, Chicken, Spider, the Heaven and hell, Armed soldier, and Satan in the appearance of the Giant, and Dragon, as the subject matter. Such beings, adhered to the human's realistical life, are sensible, and folklore, easily understandable to all humen, regardless of places, and the times. Also, the contents contained in the Allegory, holds the nature of general religion, and universality with the traditional subject matter of(Relief of Soul). However, the work not only contained paradoxical, and exclussive religious logic of the Bible, which Bunyan apprehended, but also it has given such impression of intention to clarify, and make in the such dogma. And the Calvinism belief for the Bible implied in the contents of this kind of work, is closely connected with the expression of the work, under formation of one of the logis. However, the undeniable theological contents, and the dogmatic discussion, which can even be tediously sensible at a time, as are concealed in his fluent type of dialogue, and the traditional form, known as Allegory, shall not remain a great deal of impression to the readers.

Jurthermore, as the persons among the 17th Century's conceived the worship of Bunyan's had appreciated the work, shall become impossible the recognition for the expression, and intimacy of the contents. Therefore, I have educed the theological standpoint in the work, namely the entered figures' belief for the Bible, and the relativity of literal effect given by the belief to have been allegorized.
