Description: The way we understand particular spaces is mediated by our perceptions of the difference between the "sacred" and the "profane". Throughout history, different peoples have revered vastly diverse spaces as sacred for vastly diverse reasons.

In "Sacred Space", Benjamin Z. Kedar and R. J. Zwi Werblowsky have compiled a wide-ranging collection of essays exploring a broad array of ancient and contemporary holy places. The book reviews sacred spaces of the ancient religions -- Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Indian and East-Asian Religions -- and discusses how these spaces have been conceptualized and experienced. Chapter topics include an investigation of the role of charismatic dreams in the creation of sacred sites in present-day Israel; an analysis of cities as cultic centers in Germany and Italy during the Middle Ages; a history of the sacred Mount Hiko in Japan; and a study of the Muslim holy cities as foci of Islamic revivalism in the eighteenth century "Sacred Space" provides readers with original and illuminating examples of the myriad ways in which we perceive and construct sacred space.
