"Sacred Worlds" explores the ways in which religion, its symbols, rites, beliefs and hopes, has shaped the world in which we live.
Chris Park explores the definitions of religion, its historical and ideological origins and its development. Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam and their numerous offshoots are all described.
The wide range of material drawn from these different belief systems is set within the context of religious, demographic, political and economic change. The nature of sacred space as place of pilgrimage and as cultural landscape is also analysed.
This book enriches our understanding of the ways in which religion has mapped our world.
