Book News
Explores the idea of sacred ground (found in most cultures) and whether such sacredness is innate, or acquired over time through association with a particular event, person, tradition, or artwork. Thirty sites are profiled in color photos and essays. The sites are grouped in sections on monuments and landscapes that are considered holy because of their association with saints and spiritual teachers; burial places and shrines; structures built "to the glory of God"; and pilgrimage destinations. Includes maps and a gazetteer with information on visiting each site. 9.25x11.5" Annotation copyright Book News, Inc. Portland, Or.
