An Index to the Characters

Pilgrim's Progress

Table format is Copyright©1999,2001 by Daniel B. Sedory. All Rights Reserved.

This page can be used as a special index to the text of Bunyan's work, or simply as a reference for checking the abbreviations used for various character's names.

Each of the character's names or abbreviations in this list are actually hyperlinked to their first occurrence in the text. Characters without an abbreviation appear only on the right side of the table. The abbreviations are linked to where they are first used in Bunyan's book. Note that a few characters, such as Christian, who is presented in the very first paragraph of the book, may be introduced into the text by Bunyan many paragraphs before the first occurrence of their names.

If a character's name is italicized, this indicates that the character appears in one or more of the following chapters as well. And a pair of brackets ([ ]) will surround the names of a few notable figures that are talked about, but never speak for themselves.
